where to play go in Japan 2009/9/15 16:41
Where I'm from in Seattle, there's a go center where people can stop by and play go. I'm in Japan on vacation now, and I thought it might be fun to play a game.

I'm in Sendai now, and going to Sapporo and Tokyo. Are there go centers or go clubs in these cities that a foreigner might drop by and play a game?

I'm having a little trouble searching for "go japan" on google, as it seems to not understand I am referring to the game and not the verb.

Most of us probably are not aware what you mean by a Go center and play. Could you provide a tad bit more info? Is it like a place to go play snooker or something like that?

Igo? 2009/9/16 10:25
Are you referring to the board game? In that case, it's Igo (rather than just Go).

Sorry, I haven't a clue where you can play games in your current region though...

Thanks a-passer-by! This is exactly what I was looking for!

babelfish seems to handle the site, although, google translate barfs for some reason.

Wow, there's a lot of places... I wonder if you can just show up to one of these places and expect to find someone to play, or if you need to bring a friend?
