Kiseisha was a splinter group formed by players around Karigane Junichi, who left soon after the formation in 1924 of the Nihon Ki-in.
Others involved included Suzuki Tamejiro (for less than two years), Takabe Dohei, Inoue Kyuhi, Hori Buko. Kato Shin was briefly with Kiseisha. Takabe's student Nakano Kiichiro was an associate. Onoda Chiyotaro joined, but left in 1928.
Kiseisha took on the Nihon Ki-in in a major match, with highlights the games of the young Kitani Minoru, and the celebrated 1926 game Karigane v. Shusai. Nozawa Chikucho was on the team.
Keiinsha was in effect a successor organisation.
