He combined being a top pro with an ability to write on a wide range of topics in days when the fledgling amateur go audience had to be found and nurtured.Kato was famous also as a defender of no-komi go. He thus had a sympathy for and an insight into Edo go which comes through in his commentaries.John Fairbairn is a prolific and experienced translator and writer on go history for the western audience.
