Shusai Prize


The Shusai Prize (秀哉賞) is a domestic, Japanese recognition award given by the Nihon-Kiin to its most outstanding and promising player of the previous year. The first award was given in 1964; has followed an annual schedule; and is usually announced between January to March. The award is a tribute to Honinbo Shusai, who played an important role in the founding of the Nihon-Kiin.
