Jin Nyodo – shakuhachi master
Jin Nyodo (May 10, 1892 – 1965) was born in Aomori prefecture, Tsugaru (Northern Japan) where he studied the unique regional style, the Kinpu Ryu (Nezasa ha). He later moved to Tokyo where he studied Kinko Ryu. He eventually developed his own unique playing style and arrangements of the honkyoku he collected. He also composed two new honkyoku Daiwagaku and Mujushin Kyoku. Jin Nyodo is perhaps best known for his adaptations of Myoan Taizan-ha (明暗対山派) versions of the Seien Ryu honkyoku.
