The 6th International Shogi Forum starts today in Shizuoka City, Japan. This event is organized by Shogi Association once every 3 years, and, this year, 46 players from 38 different countries are supposed to participate in it. I'm just heading there now. There is an evening party today. The tournament will be held for 2 days from tommorow. Besides the tournament, there are other programs, such as exhibition game by pro, instruction game by pro, including me, and chess match between Yoshiharu Habu and GM Peter Heine Nielsen. I'm so excited to join it!
