For those studying Jodo in Tokyo when Shimizu Sensei died a Diaspora type of event took place. In-fighting and petty politics between Shimizu's senior students created factions. Westerners had to make painful choices as to which dojo and teacher they would associate with.
Two of us, my sempai (senior in Jodo) Bruce Brown and I chose Kaminoda Sensei and his colleague Osato Sensei. We continued to train at the Zoshyukan, a rented space across the way from where Shimizu Sensei had lived. The dojo space had a very nice feeling to it, even for a contemporary structure.
