Shogi - Japanese Board Game - Tokyo - Japan

Shogi originated in China. Records show that the first versions of the games appeared in Japan from as early as the 7th Century. Shogi is known for being a distant cousin of chess, and abroad is sometimes known as Japanese chess. There have been many variants over the centuries, with the main changes being made to the pieces, board and rules. The game is unique for its use of pentagonal pieces showing kanji characters. Like chess, the objective is to protect your king until you have beaten your opponent. These players were showing their Shogi skills near Shimbashi station, in Tokyo.
