Nagasaka Sekitai (Shûni) was a medical doctor and known as a calligrapher and a poet of Chinese poetry. He studied with Mori Shuntô (1819-1889) and became one of his best pupils (the four heavenly kings).
In 1875 he moved to Tokyo starting as a doctor and working in the house where Yanagawa Seigan (1781-1858) once lived.
