In Hikaru No Go Isumi studies at the Kyuseikai some kind of go school? for young professionals and/or insei.
I would like to know on which school/ organisation this is based.
Anybody an idea?
Bob McGuigan: Most likely, judging from the name, it was based on Kikuchi Yasuro's go school, the Ryokusei Academy. JF has written a good, but somewhat out of date, article about it here
(answering my own question) Maybe it was the Kogyoku-kai
kai means someting like school as far as i know.

hirohiigo: The name sounds like it's based on shogi's "ikuseikai", which is like the insei league for girls wanting to become lady professional shogi players.
