Born in Tochigi prefecture. Sixth son of HosaiⅠ. Iizuka family moved to Tokyo in 1910. He became independent when he was 26 years old in 1916 by being encouraged and named Rokansai by seal engraver, Ashino Nanzan. He pioneered in the field of modern bamboo crafts. Began exhibiting works in the Teiten exhibitions in 1931 and was awarded a top prize in 1932.
