Here is a range of Shogi sets available either direct from Japan or from Amazon.com:

Shogi Sets
Details










Nintendo Shogi Set


This is the typical type of shogi set that is used by Japanese players.

The solid wooden board folds down the middle for convenient storage. IIt measures 13.3 x 6 x 1.3 inches when folded.

The pieces are also made of wood and are well finished.

They come in a separate wooden box of their own.

Measuring from tip to base, the Pawns are 1" (25mm) Silver and Gold are 1 1/8" (29mm) and the King, Rook and Bishop are 1 1/4" (32mm).

This is a standard Nintendo wooden shogi piece set consisting of 41 koma.

The koma are "kaki-goma" style, which means that the kanji characters that denote the piece values have been painted onto the pieces with Japanese ink and a calligraphy brush.

This is the set I recommend to regular players who want a classic Shogi set with the convenience of a folding board.

The Nintendo board and shogi pieces are available on Amazon.com.


Hanayama Portable Shogi Set


This portable, non-magnetic shogi set by Hanayama uses an indented overlay, integral to the playing surface, so that the pieces sit snugly on the squares, making it a lightweight (186 g, 6.5 oz) and convenient portable set.

The board measures 112mm x 192mm x 26mm.

Like all Hanayama games, the Honkaku Portable Shogi Set is well produced and well packaged and comes with a set of rules in Japanese.

Available on Amazon.com.

    Hi Kevin,

    Thank you for contacting me about shogi sets. Since you wrote, a couple of days ago, I have just lowered the prices of several shogi items, such as the Nintendo shogi set and Nintendo koma sets. Shogi boards and shogi training sets have also come down in price.

    Best wishes,

    David

    Hi,
    I’m a shogi player from Guatemala.
    I want a shogi set, but I want to know if do you deliver items to my country?

    Thanks.

  • admin:

    Hi Victor,

    Yes, I can ship shogi sets to Guatemala from Japan, BUT only by AIRMAIL so there would be an extra shipping fee for items that normally ship by air freight. (If you purchase an item with EMS shipping, I will not charge extra, but will ship by airmail instead.)

    Best wishes,

    David

  • Tobias:

    Greetings,
    I started taking a liking to Shogi and would like to know if the “Shogi in a Box” will be in stock in future. I’d be willing to wait for couple of months since I’m not entirely sure to spend money on a Shogi set.

When I first arrived in Japan I associated Hanafuda with ladies in kimonos - and it was the ladies who taught me how to play. But the cards are also used by the Yakuza (Japanese mafia) in gambling games... Hanafuda cards are both beautiful and delicate, and yet also tough and risky - so only play if you dare!! This famous Nintendo deck with the bust of Napoleon on the top of the box is the premier set on the market today. The cards are made to a high standard out of card and paper and are packed in an impressive, hard-wearing plastic storage box. This item will be shipped from Japan by Express Mail Service.

The popular Nintendo "Tengu" Hanafuda deck is famous for the picture of Tengu, on the box. Tengu are long-nosed demon-gods, famous in Japanese folklore and sometimes worshipped as Shinto "kami" (gods). Incidentally, Tengu's long nose ("hana") allows for a pun with the "hana" (flower) of "hanafuda". The cards are made to a high standard out of card and paper of a slightly lower grade than the Daitoryo deck. The color of the card backs is RED OCHRE. There are 48 cards, 4 four each month. Each month has its own flower, and the cards are decorated with stylized versions of the flowers plus some other details. They are packed in an impressive, hardwearing plastic storage box with a picture of "Tengu" on top.

Here's an original collector's set for Disney fans who are looking for something different! This is the world's only "Disney Hanafuda" deck... Hanafuda is a famous Japanese card game, also known in the West as "flower cards" because of the beautiful seasonal flower designs that make up the 12 sets of the deck. The set is nicely packaged and comes complete with a rules manual. The cards are standard Japanese "hanafuda" size, i.e. smaller and stiffer than standard Western decks. They have green backs and edges. Each card has a Disney character on it.

Kabufuda ("nine-cards") are Japanese playing cards used for gambling games such as Oicho-Kabu. A Kabufuda deck contains 40 cards, with designs representing the numbers 1 through 10. There are four cards for each number. Kabufuda cards are smaller and stiffer than Western playing cards. The object of all kabufuda games is to get a total closest to nine. "Oicho-Kabu" is a traditional Japanese gambling game similar to baccarat. The goal of the game is to reach a total closest to 9 without going over. As in baccarat, the last digit of any total over 10 makes your hand: a 15 counts as 5, a 12 as 2, and a 20 as 0. The name of the Japanese mafia, the "Yakuza", originates from this game. The worst Oicho-Kabu hand is 8-9-3, or "ya-ku-sa". This gives a sum total of 20, or 0 points. Only play this game if you dare...

Love Letter Game - Original JAPANESE Versionβ€” $19.97 (Save 7%!)

Love Letter is a beautifully intriguing and yet fast and easy card game for 2 to 4 players that uses just 16 cards... By "easy" I mean, it is easy to play once you have tried it a couple of times... You will still need to use your powers of deduction and memory (as well as a little luck) to win... Love Letter was released in 2012 in Japan by Japanese game designer Seiji Kanai. WIN THE HAND OF A JAPANESE PRINCESS... You are playing for the hand of a Japanese Princess who has just come of age... Unfortunately, gaining access to her is not so easy as she is confined to the palace, and you must communicate by letter and rely on go-betweens to deliver them for you... You must also prevent your rivals (the other players) from delivering their letters, and try to avoid their attempts to stop your letter from being delivered. To do that, you will use the services of court guards, samurai, advisers and others to win the heart of the Princess... Each time your letter is successfully delivered you will receive a token of affection from the Princess... The player with the most tokens wins the game - and the hand of the Princess! Gameplay: Shuffle the deck of 16 cards. Remove one card from play. Each player draws a card. The first player draws a second card and then plays one of his or her cards and performs the action the card allows, and so on, player by player until (1) only one player remains in the round or (2) all the cards have been drawn, in which case, the remaining players compare their cards and the player with the highest card wins a token of affection from the Princess! NOTE: The cards in this deck and the instructions are all in JAPANESE! This set is for Love Letter players who want to use the original Japanese language deck. This deck also contains extra cards that allow you to add more characters to the set. There are also different versions of the cards included, so you can play using cards with Japanese text on them, OR once you know what all the cards allow you to do, you can play with TEXT FREE cards (pictures only)...
