Professional shogi player to visit Vancouver!

Join us for the first-ever visit to Canada by a professional shogi (Japanese chess) player. Shogi pro Madoka Kitao (北尾 まどか) will deliver a shogi and animal shogi presentation at 1:00pm. Afterward, we will break out into games of shogi and animal shogi.

Ms. Kitao travels the world regularly to promote Japanese chess. She has written several books about shogi, and is the creator of Let’s Catch the Lion! (animal shogi / どうぶつしょうぎ), a smaller version of shogi that uses animal images to encourage people to try Japanese chess.

Please note: The initial presentation at 1:00pm will be entirely in Japanese language; we apologize for any inconvenience. Everyone is welcome to attend, and we hope that you’ll join us for games of shogi and animal shogi after the presentation!

When: Saturday, April 18, 2015, 1:00pm-4:00pm (presentation 1-2pm)

Where: Vancouver Japanese Language School and Japanese Hall (487 Alexander St, Vancouver, V6A 1C6)

Cost: Free Admission
