The house of Inoue (井上家) was one of the Four houses. The heads of the Inoue School (1612-1961 or 1983) were

1st Nakamura Doseki 中村道碩 Meijin 1612-1630
2nd Genkaku 玄覚 7-Dan 1630-1673
3rd Dosa 道砂 7-Dan 1673-1692
4th Dosetsu 道節 Meijin 1692-1719
5th Sakuun 策雲 8-Dan 1719-1734
heir Yuseki 友碩 5-Dan 1720-1726
6th Shunseki 春碩 8-Dan 1734-1772
7th Shuntatsu 春達 7-Dan 1772-1792
8th Intatsu 因達 7-Dan 1792-1805
9th Shunsaku 春策 7-Dan 1805-1810
10th Insa 因砂 6-Dan 1810-1824
11th Genan 幻庵 8-Dan 1824-1846
12th Setsuzan 節山 6-Dan 1846-1850
13th Matsumoto 松本 7-Dan 1850-1891
14th Otsuka 大塚 8-Dan 1891-1904
15th Tabuchi 田淵 5-Dan 1904-1917
16th Egeta 恵下田 7-Dan 1917-1961
(17th) Tsuda? 津田 6-Dan 1961-1983

The 14th head, Otsuka, moved the house from Tokyo to Osaka.

When Egeta died, one of his pupils, Tsuda Yoshitaka, got some support and became the 17th head. But the succession was not widely recognized. He continued to issue diplomas on his own. At least, "Gendai Igo Taikei" (An Outline of Modern Go) series published in 1982 lists the house (棋院井上家) in its "Recommeded By" section. Tsuda died in 1983 with no successors.

When playing professionally, the 2nd through the 17th Inoue were known as Inoue Inseki 井上 因碩 (See iemoto system). The use names shown in the table are from their:

  • a) names before becoming the head (2nd to 10th),
  • b) retirement names (11th and 12th), or
  • c) original family names (13th to 17th).

The head is generally referred to as Inoue (use name) Inseki for distinction.
