Shogi in Oxford / March 2011 shogi event

The Oxford University Japan Society (OUJS) is a student run society which brings together both university members and others with an interest in things Japanese. All are welcome.

On 5 February 2011 membership secretary Enki Cheung launched a Shogi Club with a beginners introduction session and a challenge match. The next shogi event will be on 5 March 2011. This is during the OUJS Matsuri from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th March. The schedule also includes sake and sushi tastings and viewing films by the celebrated Japanese film director and animator Miyazaki Hayao. Details can be found on the OUJS news blog here.

London shogi club member and current British Champion Steven Cain will be there on Saturday and will give a talk on shogi, help with the prizegiving, and offer comments and encouragement to all those learning this great Japanese game.
