Hashimoto (1883–1945) was active in Kyoto, where he produced a number of nihonga works inspired by Chinese scenery or Chinese classical literature.

He studied at Chikujokai, a private school established by the famous nihonga painter Takeuchi Seiho, but eventually withdrew due to differences of opinion.
