    Take a Japanese Chess (Shogi) class in Asakusa, Tokyo

    Take a Japanese Chess (Shogi) class in Asakusa, Tokyo I had a great time learning Shogi at this experience. The host contacted me beforehand to get a measure on my ability and was able to work around this easily. We met nearby the location. Once there the lesson takes place in a traditional style room with tatame mats. After a bit of background we were into to practice games. During the games we were served with tea and rice crackers. It was a fun time and I hope to put what I learnt to good use soon.

    Take a Japanese Chess (Shogi) class in Asakusa, Tokyo

    Take a Japanese Chess (Shogi) class in Asakusa, Tokyo So much fun, Luke and Megumi met us and spoke with us in English. Luke explained the history and rules of shogi and then got us straight into practicing before we both played against him at the same time. It was a lot of fun and when we lost, Luke took us back through the game and got us to try to think of other strategies we could have used. A great introduction into the game of shogi. Lots of laughs and a great time!!!

    Take a Japanese Chess (Shogi) class in Asakusa, Tokyo

    Take a Japanese Chess (Shogi) class in Asakusa, Tokyo When Luke contacted me to arrange our meeting, he asked if I had any experience with Shogi. I told him I sort of knew how the pieces moved but I didn’t have any idea what to do with my pieces.

    Well, now that I had my lesson, I feel like I do have some idea about how to play a game. I’m very excited to buy a set and play when I get home.

    Luke was very organized and is very good at explaining concepts. During each game we played , he took notes about my moves and what he wanted to point out about them.

    I had a really good time and felt like I’d made a lot of progress. More importantly, Luke seems to really enjoy sharing Shogi with others.

    I highly recommend this experience!

    Take a Japanese Chess (Shogi) class in Asakusa, Tokyo

    Take a Japanese Chess (Shogi) class in Asakusa, Tokyo Learning shogi with Luke was a lot of fun.

    Linking up with Luke was easy. We got over to the office quickly and started going through the material. Luke provided an excellent hand out that contained a brief description of the history of shogi, its importance in Japanese society today and some other interesting pieces of background information.

    The key to the hand out was the graphic illustration of the rules. Luke covered everything in detail and I had the paper for reference during the games. This class was clearly the result of careful planning by Luke.

    We played a few short games. These shogi problems allowed Luke to judge my retention of the rules covered and to demonstrate basic understanding of the mechanics of the game. From this point we moved on to playing full games.

    There are many things to do in Japan during a brief visit. Eating wonderful food, seeing amazing sites and doing other tourist things. This class is the only thing that I have seen that allows a visitor to glean a real insight into Japanese society over a relatively short period of time.

    Luke makes learning this game very approachable. Do yourself a favor and set aside two hours to take this class in order to get a look at this essential aspect of Japanese culture.
