This board was acquired from a thrift store in Saitama Prefecture.
The board appears to be Katsura in very good condition. It is a center-cut with a warm heartwood color throughout.
The grid-lines are slightly raised, an indicator that it was hand-lacquered by tachimori.
International seamail shipping from Japan (to almost everywhere) is already included in the purchase price for free - however, this service takes up to 2-3 months. You may upgrade to FedEx shipping for a fee, which reduces the shipping time to only 5 business days, and add that either at Checkout or by adding the FedEx upgrade to your Cart. This also means your items will have more room for padding and spend less time in transit, so they are less likely to be damaged by the shipping. In either case you will have a tracking number from the shipping service that you can use to sign up for notifications.
Please understand that this is a vintage item, so it is sold in an as-is condition.
