Description
Madoka Kitao (北尾 まどか) will deliver a shogi and animal shogi demonstration – the first such demo ever held in Canada by a shogi professional! After the presentation by Ms. Kitao, we will then break out into games of shogi and animal shogi.
Ms. Kitao travels the world regularly to promote Japanese chess. She has written several books about shogi, and is the creator of Let’s Catch the Lion! (animal shogi / どうぶつしょうぎ), a smaller version of shogi that uses animal images to encourage people to try Japanese chess.
PLEASE NOTE: The initial presentation at 1:00pm will be entirely in Japanese language; we apologize for any inconvenience. Everyone is welcome to attend, and we hope that you’ll join us for games of shogi and animal shogi after the presentation!
