Ujo Noguchi graduated from Tokyo Semmon Gakko, predecessor of Waseda University, where he studied under Doctor Shoyo Tsubouchi.
Ujo Noguchi organized the Waseda Poetry Group with Gyofii Soma. It was soon disbanded and he became a public official and then farmer. When doyo, or children's songs of a new style, became popular around 1920, he resumed his writing career, writing many doyo and poems in the fashion of folk songs. Many of his poems and songs, featured by a pastoral lyricism, are now classics.
