Jun-Meijin, a Japanese go term that means half-Meijin, was a rank, corresponding to 8-dan, accorded to seventeen players during the Edo era of Japanese Go.

 Yasui Santetsu           1612-1644
 Hayashi Monnyusai        1612-????
 Honinbo Sanetsu          1630-1658
 Yasui Senkaku            1700-1737
 Hayashi Bokunyu Monnyu   1706-1726
 Inoue Sakuun Inseki      1721
 Hayashi Incho Monnyu     1727-1743
 Yasui Shuntetsu Senkaku  1737-1775

 Honinbo Shuwa            1847-1873
 Ito Showa                1801-1878 (Note: The only Jun-Meijin that was never the head of any house.)

It should be noted that 17th-18th century dates are approximate as to when 8 Dan was achieved. As I get info I will correct it.
