Won Honinbo Tournament, then drew play-off match with Kato Shin, 3 wins to 3 losses. Awarded title because of better tournament record. During Game 2 of the 2nd Honinbo Title match against Hashimoto Utaro, who was challenging for the title, he fell ill and was forced to default. Was unable to resume his career. Had many pupils, including Kajiwara Takeo 9 dan and Shiraishi Yutaka 9 dan. Among his pupils, his reputation was that of "his go is without a trace of anything suspicious about it; both Kitani and Shimamura have suspicious aspects to their games. But Sekiyama's health is suspect." Lived in Osaka, Japan.
