Keywords: Culture & History

The Hiseikai (裨聖會, ひせいかい) was a group of five professional players formed by Karigane Junichi in 1922. Its goal was to play multiple round-robin tournaments under a new playing system with the manifesto of: Time limits to be up to 32 hours per games, 16 hours per player. Players who have not finished playing before expiry of their time allocation lose the game.[1] It was the first organisation to introduce time limits. It discarded the traditional systems for the Sogosaki system (総互先制), which is regarded as the birth of the modern playing system. It included even games, regardless of playing strength, time limits and Oteai games. The group consisted of: Karigane Junichi, Onoda Chiyotaro, Segoe Kensaku, Suzuki Tamejiro and Takabe Dohei. It disbanded in 1924 with the founding of the Nihon Kiin.
