Chinen Kaori's Nihon Ki-in photo

Chinen Kaori (知念 かおり, born 28 July 1974) is a Japanese female professional Go player who reached 3-dan in 1997. She is married to Yo Kagen. 4th dan in 2005 [1], 5th in 2015 and 6th in 2017 [2].


Her first title, the Women's Honinbo in 1997, involved huge press coverage at the time due to the fact that she was quite far along in her first pregnancy when the title match games were being played. Game four (which she won, along with the title) was actually played on chairs in the Yugen no Ma room of the Nihon Ki-in. As by that point in time, the baby was expected any day.
