Japanese Painter of the Edo Period and founder of the Shijō school of painting.
He was a disciple of the painter and poet Yosa Buson (1716–1784), a master of Japanese southern school painting.

... he began his education as a painter very early. In those years his masters were painters of the nanga-style, learned scholars of the literati-traditions that had come over from china, among them Yosa Buson (1716–1784) who taught Goshun among other things literati-painting and haiku-poetry.

... By 1787 it was certain that he would have to join up with another band of painters, so he worked with the circle of painters around Maruyama Ōkyo (Maruyama Okyo 1733–1795) to work at the screen-doors of the Daijō-ji, a temple in Hyōgo prefecture.
