Born in 1888 in Japan, he came to the U.S. in 1908 and settled in Portland, Oregon. He first started taking classes in 1918 at the Portland Museums school of art and spent 11 more years as a full or part-time student and teacher. During the 1920s he made painting trips to the San Francisco Bay area. He worked for many years as a reporter for the North American Times, a Japanese American newspaper. He also apparently was an influence on a young Charles Heany. While sketching on Mount Shusan in Washington, he died in a blizzard in 1929, falling into a recently sketched crevasse.
