Gi Gakusei was a Ryukyuan scholar-bureaucrat known for his superb skills at music and at reciting Chinese poetry from memory. He was promoted in 1837 to a rank entitled to wear a yellow court cap, and was also appointed at that time to serve as a musician (gakushi) on the 1842 Ryukyuan embassy to Edo.
