Shogi workshop at JICC Brussels – 14th of August

Learn how to play Shogi! Instructions can be given in English, French or Dutch. From 14:30 the workshop is for children only. From 15:30 on it is for adults.

Shogi is the traditional chess of Japan. Modern shogi is approximately as old as modern western chess (what we call chess), about 500 years old. The game is probably derived primarily from Chinese chess, xiangqi, but also has interesting similarities to Thai chess, makruk.

Reservation required (max 20 participants): info@bx.mofa.go.jp
