This is a film about Yasui Santetsu, a Go player and famous Japanese astronomer, better known as Shibukawa Shunkai (played by Okada Junichi).

 

He was the creator of the Japanese Jokyo calendar, which was used for many decades, and the author of many books about astronomy.

 

He also played with his friend and rival, Honinbo Dosaku, in the castle games - who is a character in the story too. One famous game between Dosaku and Santetsu, where Santetsu opened on tengen, is depicted in the film.

 

The heroine in the film, played by Miyazaki Aoi, works at a shrine which still exists today. Here is Cho U 9p dedicating some of his famous Go problems to that shrine: http://tenchi-meisatsu.jp/news/2012/08/20/144422170/
