Surname Hasegawa; son of Hasegawa Sadanobu I.
He designed actor prints in his father's style, but also fûkeiga (landscapes) on themes such as views of Osaka and city views featuring foreigners; also contributed nishiki-e (color print) supplements for Osaka newspapers, including Yûbin hôchi shinbun (Postal News); wrote and illustrated stories for Osaka nichnichi shinbunshi (Osaka Daily News).
* Note on the Konobu geimei: Beginning with Sadanobu II, artists of the Hasegawa lineage all used the geimei Konobu, as follows:
- Sadanobu II started as Konobu I, working in a style much like his father, Sadanobu I.
- Konobu II, younger brother of Konobu I, designed very few works and died in 1886 at age 20, never taking the Sadanobu geimei.
- Sadanobu III (1881-1963) began as Konobu III, principally in the shin hanga manner (including many silk paintings of maiko).
- Sadanobu IV (1914-1999), first son of Sadanobu III, originally Hasegawa Nobuhiro, then Konobu IV, continuing in the shin hanga-style.
- Konobu V (born 1946), daughter of Sadanobu IV, worked as Konobu V until she ascended to the Sadanobu geimei in 2003.
