Fujiwara-no-Sai


Fujiwara-no-Sai, was member of the court in the Heain period (his clothes are representative of this period). He was teaching the game of Go to the Emperor.
But Sai was banished from the court, accused by some envious opponent of having cheated during a match. He was so sad of this situation, that full with regret and anger, he committed suicide. But as with all unrepented souls, Sai was unable to leave the material world... until he is able to master go, and get one step closer to "kami no itte," or god's hand.
