Quintessentially Japanese Shogi set, recommended by the Japanese National Shogi Federation, and made in the traditional way with the board and all the pieces made of wood, so that you can hear the comforting “click” sound when you set the pieces down on the board.
The pieces use the typeface “Makiryoko”, the standard which is also used by professional shogi players. The board is foldable, with thought given to the hinge, so that it will not rattle or scratch the desk it is placed on.
For beginners, there is a Japanese language introductory guide for the rules of the game, how to move pieces, and steps for improving.
Set contents - shogi pieces (40 pieces, 1 extra, typeface description of the piece, in a wooden box that can also be used as a piece stand); foldable shogi board (34.6 x 31.4 cm); introduction guide (12 pages).
