This 17.6cm thick goban comes from a shogi and go dealer in Nara. It is from a tremendous Spruce which allows for this amazing cross-cut, so you see straight parallel lines on all 6 surfaces! Straight lines are easy on the eyes while playing.

Overall it looks very well-kept. The corners are good, and there is only 1 slight dent on the edge. It weights 16.5kg, which is rather dense for Spruce.

The legs are a wonderful warm color, so they are probably katsura, and they bring the board up to a total of 30.2cm tall.

Signs of white wax residue (mostly on the underside and legs) are a good thing, showing the board has been cared for, but I'd recommend cleaning that off with a dry towel, and reapplying a paste wax. Visit my Care Instructions to learn more.

This is a Vintage product.

If you would like to bundle this item with bowls and stones, please contact us. We can bundle existing inventory in Japan or do a Custom Order if you have something else in mind.

Shipping Details: 
FedEx International Priority shipping to the US from Japan is already included in the purchase price for free, a $300 service that reduces the actual transit time to only 5 business days. This is a big part of the overall cost, but is necessary given the board's size. The upside is that a FedEx box has more room for padding in order to avoid shipping damage. Please allow a week for packing and preparations, then a FedEx tracking number will be provided that you can use to sign up for notifications..
