Here is a range of Shogi sets available either direct from Japan or from

Shogi Sets

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

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.

    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,

    Hi Nikolai,

    Yes, I ship to Brazil, but there may be an extra shipping charge, depending on the weight of the parcel.

    You may use a credit card via the Paypal button without having a Paypal account. 🙂

    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?


  • 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,

    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.

  • Jonasz:

I am away on holiday from Thursday 28th July until Saturday 20th August so I will be unable to process any orders until 21st August 2016.

You may still order mahjong sets, hanafuda decks and so on, but please allow for considerable delays as nothing will be shipped until 22nd August at the EARLIEST.

Here's wishing you all a great summer.
