“Go” Workshop

  • Japanese Traditional Art ,
  • Workshop

“Go” is a strategy board game that originated in China, spread to Japan and became popular among the aristocrats of the Heian period (794-1185). It developed independently from the Chinese game. “Go” has been long-loved by the Japanese and appears in classical literature, such as “The Pillow Book” and “The Tale of Genji”. Two players take turns placing a stone of their color ; black or white on the board, on the board, competing to see who captures more “territory” than the opponent. The rules are simple but “Go” is a profoundly deep game.

We carry out simple explanation of the rules of “Go” and playing it.
Guidance are available in English, Chinese and Korean, and we will also hand out the manual in English, Chinese and Korean.
