Shoko Okamoto RIP

Shoko Okamoto - One of three dharma heirs of Shunryu Suzuki. Learned from Shunryu's son Hoitsu in July at Baker's Johanneshof that Shoko had died a year before. Finally got a page together on him.

The other two dharma heirs are Hoitsu to the left and Zentatsu Richard Baker.

Photo by Bill Schwob is Hoitsu and Shoko at Zounin holding Shunryu's master Gyokujun So-on's bow which it was said that few but him could open.
