Hoitsu Suzuki, Daigyo Moriyama, Jeff Broadbent, Bill Shurtleff, among others studied with Noiri.
Shunryu Suzuki wanted Noiri to come to the US to help out - with transmission ceremony, with practice period at Tassajara - whatever he could get. Noiri was quite strict. I heard he'd accepted some position at Eiheiji and not stayed very long. I fear we'd have been too unruly for him and that Tatsugami with his drawbacks was the best person for the job. - dc
