After a several-year hiatus, the Vancouver Shogi Club is back!
About the Vancouver Shogi Club
Everyone is welcome to join us, regardless of skill level, age, gender or background. Our players range from beginner (15-kyu) through to expert (5-dan), and we have instructors who are native English and native Japanese speakers. We would be happy to teach you how to play!
History of the Vancouver Shogi Club
Originally founded in 1968 by Mr. Makoto KUMANO (熊野理さん), the Vancouver Shogi Club was the first shogi club outside of Japan to be officially recognized by the Japan Shogi Association. Matches were played at a location on Hastings Street.
Under new management, the club was re-launched again in 2014. We hope to introduce shogi to a broader audience here in Vancouver.
