Tenchi Meisatsu | Insight into the Universe 天地明察

FULL TRAILER for the 2012 movie directed by Takita Yojiro ("Okuribito", 2008) starring Okada Junichi, Aoi Miyazaki, Yokoyama Yu, etc. Music is by Joe Hisaish...
Go Game Guru's insight:

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/

Open Your New Year's Mind Part Two: Go

Hidden within Go's tactics are complex life lessons. While the black and white stones may appear to indicate a clear divide between opponents, much of the strategy involves juggling unsettled, undecided ideas.
