Shusaku's Obscure Opponents

   

Thia page is designed to be a landing point for anyone searching for one of the many opponents of Shusaku who are now obscure, sometimes extremely so, at least in Western sources.

JohnF. They are not obscure in the GoGoD onomasticon, which is a western source (copyrighted but easily available, and is incorporated in SmartGo).

The idea is to make all the listed names aliases of this page, until / unless more information is made available.
