Ryû Sôro, also known by his art-name Ryû Kôbi, was a Confucian scholar, koto player, and poet. A resident of Kyoto for almost twenty years, he authored many works including at least one notable set of koto scores, and was closely involved with a circle of performers of Ming-style music, under the tutelage of Gi Shimei.
