Kikuchi Hōbun was born in Osaka in the Ichitani family, who were professional mounters of paintings.
He was adopted into the Kikuchi family and moved to Kyoto. He was first trained by Kanō Hōen, and from 1881 to 1885 he was one of Kōno Baireiís many pupils.


For most of his professional life he was a teacher at the Kyoto Municipal School of Fine Arts and Crafts. He frequently exhibited at the Bunten. He became a judge both at the Bunten and the Teiten.


Kikuchi Hōbun, Takeuchi Seihō, Taniguchi Kōkyō and Tsuji Kakō were the four leading painters of Kyoto at the time and the founders of the modern Kyoto school.


Recurring themes in his work are landscapes and kacho-e in the traditional style. His best known pupils are his adopted son Kikuchi Keigetsu, Kawakita Kahō, Yamada Kōun and Abe Shumpō.
He died in 1918.
