Born in Tokyo in 1883, he knocked on the door of Kiyokata Kaburaki when he was 25. Initially denied due to his age, he pleaded with Kiyokata again to be admitted and was granted the artist name “Hasui”.
He is known as a figure who established Shin-hanga, a new ukiyo-e print, with Hiroshi Yoshida and others in order to revive the declining ukiyo-e print art in Japan. He passed away on November 27, 1957, at the age of 74.
