Kenji Matsui: Suspensions (オール吊りの本, Oro tsuri no hon)

According to SMpedia, Kenji Matsui (1940–2013) was an ”amateur” nawashi, who’s work was sometimes published anonymously. He had some relations with, among others, Akechi Denki. Kenji in turn was an important influence for Kamui Jubei and the ”Mumonbaku”-style.
