Became a member of Meiji Bijutsukai and later founded Taiheiyogakai himself. In 1899, he flew over to USA and travelled through the country throwing an oil painting exhibition in various places. Afterwards, he often visited overseas to collect painting subjects or hold viewings. He produced a number of landscape prints along with Kawase Hasui under Watanabe Shozaburo.
