Gima peechin Sai Shû was a Ryukyuan scholar-official who served as the gieisei (head of street musicians) in the 1832 Ryukyuan embassy to Edo. He is known as the author of Gieisei nikki, the only such journal or record by a member of a Ryukyuan embassy to be extant today.

He died during the return journey from Edo in that year, at Fushimi, and is buried at Daikoku-ji (aka Satsuma-dera) in Fushimi, alongside Takehara peechin, the mission's sangikan, who died the same day.
