Takahashi Dohachi V (original name Ogawa Yūnosuke) was the son of Dôhachi IV (1845-1897). He took control of the kiln in 1897 until 1915 when his younger brother Dôhachi VI (Kachûtei) (1881-1941) continued the business.
The Dôhachi family was one of the three most famous families of potters in Kyoto.
