Katsuyuki Konishi (小西克幸) is a Japanese speedcuber. He was among the first top Japanese cubers of the modern era. His website, Planet Puzzle, although in Japanese, was for a number of years an important reference for the Fridrich method for western cubers. Along with Shotaro Makisumi's (English-language) website, Katsuyuki Konishi helped to introduce the Japanese system for numbering OLLs from 1 through 57 which is now widespread. Similarly their websites introduced the Japanese system of denoting wide turns on big cubes with the letter w.[1]

He was one of three Japanese cubers who attended World Championship 2003 in Toronto. It was his first overseas trip. (photos)
