Honinbo Sansa & Kashio Rigen

For many years it was believed that Honinbo Sansa had a rivalry with a person named Kashio Rigen. However, evidence referred by Fairbairn & Hall (2009, p. 198-9) suggests that in all probability the name Kashio Rigen was a confusion based upon another text, where the two names Kashio and Rigen are immediately next to each other.[1] This would mean that Kashio and Rigen are different people and Honinbo Sansa had a rivaly with two individuals, rather than a single person.
