The titles table is very unfinished. I know which titles he's won, just not when. Can 06:31, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

There was no People's Republic of China when he was born. The national flag should be corrected. Maybe Shanghai was occupied by Japanese troops at war?--Jusjih 02:20, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

I'm not very fond of the history between China and Japan, but I'll have a look and see if the flag should be changed. Can 03:48, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

The GoBase page at here says that he was born in Shanghai, China, but his nationality is Taiwanese. Now I'm even more perplexed. Can 05:38, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
After China was divided into the Republic of China and the People's Republic of China following the Chinese Civil War, each Chinese government considers itself solely legitimate. Saying that his nationality is Taiwanese is because even though the ROC considers Mainlanders its nationals of the Mainland Area instead of foreigners, Rin Kaiho is an ROC national of the Taiwan Area while he has never acquired Japanese nationality. Japan considers Taiwanese to be Chinese nationals when issuing Alien Registration Cards. It has caused confusions and scares while Mainland Chinese have the highest crime rate among aliens in Japan.--Jusjih 08:35, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
I have changed the flag of his birthplace to that of the Republic of China.--Jusjih 11:42, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Rin Kaiho's place in Go history[edit]

Guo Juan makes a reference to an important role Rin Kaiho played in changing basic openings (for white, after a chinese opening), in her 2007-07 video: Lecture 1 by Guo Juan 5p part 4. That innovation should certainly be entered here in recognition of Rin Kaiho's contributions to Go.
