There much to be said about objects created from by hand and from natural materials. This entire set is created from natural wood, not plywood. The wood grains are clearly visible on the board. The board is very strong and very sturdy. There is a sliding drawer within the board that houses all the Shogi pieces and an instructional sheet.

The game pieces in the set are also made from natural wood. Some of the pieces contain natural wood grains as well as rings. The writing on the pieces appears to have been written by hand, as some pieces have discolored from someone whipping the ink away to rewrite some characters.

Unfortunately, this set does not come with anything to house the pieces captured by both players during game play. The pieces are made from scrap pieces of wood--the result is one pawn had a distorted shape. Some of the larger pieces are a little wide for the squares on the board.

As for the instructional sheet it does no more than explain the basic rules of Shogi. Matching the pieces to sheet may be confusing to those who cannot read Japanese because the writing in the manual does not match the font use on the actual game pieces--especially for rook, bishop, knight and silver general.

This set gives only the bare essentials needed to play and to learn how to play Shogi. It comes with a sheet explaining the rules, game peices, and a board with a drawer to house all the game pieces. The piece comes with two extra pawns; so the distorted piece may be discarded. Aside from minor issues (a distorted pawn, the writing on the pieces written in a different font and manner than what is written on the sheet, and the size of major pieces being too wide for the squares on the game board) this is a very nice piece.

Bottom line, it meets my needs, and the price was reasonable.

As another reviewer has said, some of the pieces are larger than the squares, but going slightly over the lines isn't really a big problem. Some of the wooden pieces are slightly chipped or flawed (no paint missing - it was chipped before painting), and the red ink on the promoted sides seems to be somewhat faded on many of the pieces. One or two of the black-ink sides were slightly smudged.

In short, this is a great set for playing shogi with. Not so much a collector's set to display proudly, but that's not what I got it for.

The one thing that does impress me quality-wise, is the drawer under the board for storing the pieces. It slides in and out easily (from either side), and when sliding in, it smoothly finds its place. It's not too easy to overshoot that place, nor does it jarringly "snap" into place. It just "finds" it.

Following an idea from youtube, I took a sharpie to the pieces, to mark on the corners what the available moves for all the pieces were. Dots for single-square moves, short lines at the edges for distance moves (lance, rook, bishop), and L-shaped hooks at the front for the knights. Hopefully this makes it easier for a new player to join the fun.

I bought this to have a real board to play shogi instead of a little android app. I'm super happy to have it, but I wouldn't give it 5 stars because of a few little quirks.

Pros:
-Board is raised, not flat, for added comfort
-Pieces are different sizes based on power, useful for quickly recognizing them
-Two extra pawn pieces
-Came with basic instructions

Cons:
-Pieces are kind of light, they can slide around more than I'd like them too
-Pieces are either too big or board is too small, and the larger ones are a little bigger than their squares
-The drawer inside the board isn't divided or anything, and there aren't tables on the side to place pieces. My friend and I just keep our pieces on each side of the drawer, but it would be nice to have a divider or something.

I bought this shogi for my husband' birthday gift.
My husband and I never played shogi before but, we read the instruction that came with and played a few times.
It's very fun game!

Instruction(Ebglish) shows very basic rules, how to play, how to move pieces and how to read.
Shogi board is not too small and not too big, it was perfect size for just getting started.

We watched a few You Tube videos to get understand more details.

I think shogi pieces are little big, some of them don't fit perfect in the square space.
Every time I place them on the board, I always hit another pieces.
So, you kinda have to fix pieces all the time.

There is a long slide-style box inside the shogi board which you can keep your pieces.
I wish it had both sides separately , so each player can have own box.
But, it has only one long box.

Quality of wood is OK. It'll be nice gift for beginner.

There are two extra pieces for Pawn (Fuhyo).

So far, we really enjoy this product :D

The packaging was very good.

The board exceeded my expectations from the description. The board is very well made for the price, and the set I got looked better than the product image. The bottom of the board is even covered in felt, which is an unnecessary nice touch, a sign of the quality put in making the board.

The pieces are as the other reviewers said - real wood, cut and beveled completely in x, y and z axis as they should be. Some corners chipped, as will happen when cutting real wood like that, which is quite acceptable in a mass produced product. The pieces are stamped in black on the front and on the back in red. The pieces are not lacquered at all, just bare wood (as opposed to the board top, which is lightly lacquered or polished.) Note that a stylized brushstroke font is used, which is nice, as this is a decorative set. But to my tastes, I like the board better than the pieces.

Shown is a photo of the set with the drawer pulled out.
