BTW, I've read he started to train with Hoshina Chikanori at age 9, but the same source (Habersetzer) also says Shiro name changing in 1884 was caused by his adoption via marriage with one of Hoshina's daughter, which I find strange.
That's actually quite common in Japan - the same thing happened when Nakakura Kiyoshi married Kaiso's daughter and changed his name to "Morihiro Ueshiba".
