Kamakura jubango

    Keywords: Culture & History

This jubango, sponsored by the Yomiuri Shimbun, took place from 1939 to 1941 between Go Seigen and Kitani Minoru. Eight of the ten games were played in temples in Kamakura, a coastal town in the Kanagawa prefecture less than an hour south of Tokyo. Go Seigen won the series 6-4. It is probably the most celebrated match of the twentieth century. John Fairbairn has written a book on it, compiling various commentaries plus biographies and historical details.

John F. I have not written a book on any jubango, a term I thoroughly disapprove of. I wrote about the Kamakura Ten-game Match.
