Shôgi (literally "Generals’ chess") was played in the Middle-Ages by shôgun and samurai as a martial art for the mind. Through centuries, it became one of the most popular games in Japan.

It’s played with a chessboard, shôgiban, with 81 squares. At the beginning of the game, each player has 20 flat, slightly pointed, pieces. The aim is to take the adversary’s king.

 
 

The General Consulate of Japan in Marseille offers workshops to shôgi, Japanese chess.
