Maneuver your pieces to capture the opponent's king - that's the essence of shogi, Japan's most popular board game. Descended from the same ancient Indian game as chess, shogi dates back more than 400 years, and has been a widely enjoyed pastime for centuries. These days about 12 million people play shogi, and the internet has opened up new ways to enjoy the game. Our expert guest this time is Masahiko Urano, a professional shogi player. And in Plus One, some fun variations on the classic game!
You can watch it on-line. Please go to http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/index.html and click "NOW ON AIR" on the right. The first broadcast is going to take place within 30 minutes. The same program will repeat.
