Ohkochi entered Shinkokugeki, training under Sawada Shojiro. Shinkokugeki was known for jidaigeki, the period drama genre, particularly for its realistic sword fights (tate) or swordplay (kengeki).

With this background, Ohkochi entered the Nikkatsu studio in 1925 and soon came to fame in chanbara (sword-fighting) samurai films, a subgenre of jidaigeki emphasizing tate – playing characters such as Kunisada Chuji and Tange Sazen.

At his peak, he was one of the top jidaigeki stars alongside Bando Tsumasaburo and Kataoka Chiezo. During World War II, he also appeared in a number of war films. (Source: Wikipedia)
