I've mentioned before in my Real Board Go Lectures that there are a lot of new young players that deserve your attention. What you might not expect is that a Japanese player is my next recommendation due to his amazing use of influence! That's right. Japanese influence.

Normally Korea and Chinese hog the spotlight on best players around and young talent. It's no secret that Japan is again having trouble keeping its youth interested in Go. But that's not to say they don't have their own noteworthy players. Here I bring you Shibano Toramaru! He'll be redefining your idea on how to use influence. Enjoy!
