Nihon Ki-in

List of pros affiliated with Nihon Ki-in. Based on [ext] the list on their official website.

The romanization at Nihon Ki-in's website was used, which could be different than SL's. If you want to fix them, better to keep the romanization, they are official after all. Like edit "[Chang Hsu]" to "[Cho U] (Chang Hsu, Zhang Xu)" or something similar. And make aliases.

There are players not listed here, such as Tamura Kahei, Tamura Minoru, Shikama Chiyoji, Kusaka Kaneo, Kuwahara Munehisa, Shinohara Masami and Fujita Toyojiro. There are perhaps others too. Basically early/pre-Nihon Ki-in pros? Not sure why these people are not listed on Nihon Ki-in's website.

If anyone is interested, [ext] https://homepages.cwi.nl/~aeb/go/misc/progression.html lists everyone. That page also links to Nihon Ki-in or Kansai Ki-in profile when available. This SL page lists only pros with a profile page in those 2 websites. So comparison to that website will give you the missing pros.

The website provide the kanas for the names. Automatic romanization was used to get the romanized names. They may not agree with the names used by SL.

Residing in Japan

Non-Nihon/Kansai Ki-in pros.

Residing outside Japan.

Doesn't seem there's any Japanese non-Nihon/Kansai Ki-in pros.

tapir: I just would specify that "Japanese professionals" for current time means professionals of Nihon Ki-in or Kansai Ki-in and be done with it.
