Nakajima Nobori was Hachioji Sennin Doshin and a pupil of Tennen Rishin Ryu. He tried to join the Shinsengumi in 1864 but was ordered to spy in Musashi province, Sagami province, and Kai province by Kondo Isami. In late 1867, he officially joined the Shinsengumi and stayed until the end of the Battle of Hakodate.
He left drawings of some Shinsengumi members.
