(b.1913, died 2001-03-22) Nihon Ki-in pro, 8 dan in 1970.
The list of professional players' Go styles describes his simply as "thick".
He was promoted 9 dan in 1981, after his retirement (see http://www.nihonkiin.or.jp/player/htm/ki001005.htm).
 The original text from Liu's article says that "he won a game against Segawa Yoshio, losing two". The assumption is made by the phrasing that the two he lost were to Segawa.
