If you are looking for a Go board / Go stone / Shogi board / Shogi piece, go to the Maruhachi Gobanten.


 Thank you for visiting our website.
 Our specialty handmade Go boards and Shogi boards are made of materials that have been dried for many years, so there are no problems such as mold, cracks, or stains. You can buy with confidence.
 In addition to the board, the shopkeeper is focusing on shogi pieces. We purchase a lot of wood such as Mikura boxwood and Satsuma boxwood as piece materials, so we are confident in the consistence of the wood.
 You can see the luxury gems and works of the Maruhachi Gobanten at the shop in Tokyo.
 We look forward to welcoming you to our shop.

Traditional craftsmanship for you

Go board,Shogi board,Maruhachi Gobanten

 Tokukichi Kito, my father who spent 70 years in his life making traditional Go boards. He passed away in 1993 but there are many masterpieces of his last works.
 The breath of life the moment you pick it up, the cool sound when you put it on the board, and the traditional techniques that have been handed down in Japan for hundreds of years will lead all users to a famous game that surpasses victory and defeat.
