Description

This small and portable Shogi board is hinged in the middle and folds nicely.  The board has been used in the past and is worn with cracks, marks and scratches. Despite this wear the board may still be used though it does not include any playing pieces.  The board includes Japanese writing on the back though our Japanese staff are unable to make out the meaning due the highly stylized nature of the writing.  This board dates from the mid Showa period (1926-1989) or before and was acquired in the historic city of Shizuoka Japan very near Mt. Fuji.

Size of Shogi board:
Height: 0.4 inches (1.0 centimeters)
Width: 4.9 inches (12.5 centimeters)
Length: 5.1 inches (13.0 centimeters)
Weight: 2.6 ounces (73 grams)
