State of the final game I am very happy that I was able to participate in the national tournament for the first time and won the championship. I have been studying shogi every day for the purpose of participating in this year’s national tournament. It was a very enjoyable tournament because I was able to point to people from various regions and shogi.

From left to right: Momoko Kato three-stage and Tenhiko Sato galaxy This time it was a national tournament, so the 16 people gathered had a feeling of tension and spirit. The final game was a high-level shogi, and there were scenes that I was impressed by explaining. I think that participating in such a shogi tournament will lead to the exchange of children of the same age. Even a child who meets for the first time can become friends by exchanging opinions in the battle after the game, so Shogi is also a “communication tool” including on the board. I think that Shogi itself is a place where children’s personality is put out, so I think that it is a meeting that will be a good meeting place where you can collide with each other and improve. The reason why shogi continues for hundreds of years is because of the fun of shogi. I want you to enjoy shogi first. Children who have not pointed to shogi yet have a game to get close to the piece and board, so I want them to touch the shogi.
