From Yamashiro Hiroshi 9p's twitter (https://twitter.com/yamashiro_h).
Since this was posted on January 18, I suppose he was there for Shusai's death anniversary. Was it part of official (Nihon ki-in? as Honorary Honinbo?) business or does he have a more personal interest in/link with Shusai?

PS. Didn't really know where to post this or even if this should be posted. I just found the picture interesting.

Just for the record, it's Shuei's grave just behind Ishida.

Not surprising that he visits the Honinbo grave site. He is 24th Honinbo, Shuhou, so he's a member of the "family".

Honinbo Shusai was the last of the Honinbo family and gave the family name to Nihon-Kiin, which led to the Honinbo title tournament. In commemorating his achievement, Nihon-Kiin holds an annual memorial on the date of his death, Jan 18. It should be hosted by the current Honinbo holder, Iyama Yuta.
By the way this temple seems to be a Honinbo family temple, and hosts graves of various Honinbo heirs including Shusaku, Dosaku and Jowa. The name of the temple is called Honmyo-ji and located in Sugamo, Tokyo.
