Good evening (at least at the moment),
I'm looking for any information anyone might have on Shogaken honkyoku. As far as I'm aware, but am still early in my research, there is only one piece from this faction. I have Shogaken Reibo in 2 versions. Does anyone know of any other honkyoku from the Shogaken, or other versions of the same piece? I know of the Yokoyama style version and Jin Nyodo version of Shogaken Reibo. Any help would be appreciated. Links or information in Japanese is also fine as most of my sources are in Japanese.
Nothing... oh well. I did find a little information, but not about more honkyoku from Shogaken, but that Shogaken Reibo is only attributed to Shogaken by Jin Nyodo, but not actually from Shogaken the temple. . .
I got that from a Fuke honkyoku player/researcher.
Where did the researcher say Shoganken Reibo was from then? Would be interesting to hear more details.
He's sending me a bunch of his research in the mail, I'll try to translate it.
Should be good stuff. It'll probably answer my questions.
I'm putting together a research paper for my own knowledge. After its all put together I'll share it : )
Let me look back through my e-mails to see if he said where Shogaken Reibo is from.
Good timing, I got his research data in the mail today. That guy is awesome.
He answered my question about Shogaken reibo.
It is actually from Miyagi prefecture and is a version of Miyagi Reibo
It is from 小野寺源吉（onoji genkichi? in Miyagi prefecture.
That temple has transmitted 2 honkyoku (that I know of) being 鈴慕 and 巣鶴.

Chris, I learned Furin from Taniguchi sensei and was later told that it was Shoganken Reibo. Have you heard of this piece and story behind it?
As far as I know, not sure on the whole story of Furin, but it seems to be another name for Shogaken Reibo. I'm not familiar with that version, how does it play? Is it similar to Jin Nyodo's Shogaken Reibo?
I read through some other information on Onodera Genkichi. Sounded like a temple name at first in the e-mail I got, but that is the guys name.
Anyway, like I said before he transmitted two honkyoku, being what is commonly known as Shogaken Reibo and Futaiken Tsuru no Tsugomori.
These honkyoku, although I'm not entirely sure, seem to have come from a Komuso temple in the village Mr. Genkichi grew up in, called Kinjyoji.
Not sure why the other names were attached to the pieces, giving the impression they came from those respective temples. I was thinking that maybe who ever changed the name probably learned it at those temples and swapped the title. I'm just guessing at that bit though.
