Haizan was the son of a minor Nanga painter from Fukuoka, Kyûshû. In his early years he studied calligraphy with Hirose Tansô (1782-1856). In Kyoto he became a pupil of Nakanishi Kôseki (1807-1884). In 1871 he injured his right hand and only could use his left and called him self Hidaraite (left hand). In 1878 he went to China to study painting.
