He also studied with Kawabata Gyokushô (1842-1913), but after his death in 1913, he became a pupil of Matsubayashi Keigetsu (1876-1963). In 1922, one of his works was selected for the 2nd exhibition of the Teiten and again in 1924. At the same time, he worked as an illustrator for the popular magazine King (from the English word ‘king’). . During the Second World War he was evacuated to Shimoina-gun, Nagano Prefecture and has since lived in the city of Iida, where he was a juror for the Japanese painting section of the Nagano Prefectural Exhibition. He was also a central figure in the Nanshin Art Association and the Jurokuyokai, through which he made an important contribution to the promotion of local culture.
