Murakami Bunsho

   

Murakami Bunshō (村上文祥, 1932 - 1999) was a very strong Japanese amateur player, amateur 7 dan, 8 dan posthumously. Born on the island of Innoshima, Shusaku's birthplace, he won the Amateur Honinbo five times. His 1961 Pro-Am Honinbo Match game against Takagawa Kaku was the first Go game broadcast on TV. In the WAGC, he came 4th in 1979 and 3rd in 1981.

Though his attacking style made his results more erratic than Kikuchi Yasuro's, he beat many pros including Nie Weiping and Kobayashi Koichi (5 dan at the time).

In contrast to Kikuchi, Murakami remained a pure amateur; he served as a Vice President of Ebara Corporation in his later business career.
