Birthday 30th November, 1216
Died 1300

Kangan Giin (????, 1217-1300) was a disciple of Dogen and the founder of the Higo school of Soto Zen Buddhism. It has been claimed that his father was Emperor Go-Toba or Emperor Juntoku. He did much evangelization work in Kyushu, where he founded Daiji-ji (???) in Kumamoto. This temple has since been destroyed by fire twice, and nothing of Giin's remains there. He probably studied in China, but all extant biographies of him are hagiography so it is impossible to be certain.
