Tatsuno studied under Josiah Conder at the Imperial College of Engineering (Kôbu gakkô) in Tokyo, and later traveled to London, in 1880, to pursue further training in Western/modern architecture. He returned to Japan in 1883, and the following year succeeded Conder as head of the architecture department at the Kôbu gakkô.
Tatsuno also designed the railway station at Hamadera-kôen, in Sakai (Osaka prefecture). Completed in 1907 and still in active use until January 2016, it is the oldest still-extant railway station building operated by a private railway company in the country.
