This Go board is famous board craftsman Mr. Torayoshi YOSHIDA made Hyuga Kaya Masame Go board with legs (7.8-sun/23.6cm thick).

This 23.6cm-thick Go board is the super high grade with extraordinary presence.
Such a thick Masame board is extremely rare, as this big diameter of Hyuga Kaya wood can be hardly available recently.

The "Ichi-jo-saku (一如 作)" written on bottom of board means "made with Ichi-jo spirit" is the proof of his work.
The lines of a board are marked using Tachi-mori, the skill of drawing lines using a Japanese sword. This traditional technique highlights the beauty of natural grain patterns and the texture of lacquered line is smooth and has also a nice feeling.
The works of Mr. Torayoshi YOSHIDA feature very thin markings lines, that create elegance and beauty.
All four legs are hand-carved according to the color tone of the board and grain patterns to maximize the expression and impression of wood, and to best match with the board.

Yoshida Gobanten was established in 1916 and continuously made various Go and Shogi boards for more than 100years.
The owner takes over the name of 'Master Yoshida Torayoshi' for generations.
All the boards made by the 3rd and 4th generation of Yoshida Torayoshi, the present owner, have engraved words of Ichi-jo (一如) in Chinese character, as the evidence of his work.
The word 'Ichi-jo' is a part of famous four-character idiom 'Busshin Ichi-nyo (物心一如)', that literally means 'matter and mind are one/body and mind as one'.
This implies a strong will that when we make boards, our board and mind are as one.
The engraved words 'Ichi-jo (一如)' is the evidence of Go master, who made this board with his spirit and board as one.
We are happy to offer these special boards made by the Go board master Mr. YOSHIDA Torayoshi, for his devotion and his long years of experience and outstanding technique.

Beautiful and stately board overall. Especially, the surface of top board is extremely beautiful with no color irregularity.
Beautiful board made from Hyuga Kaya wood. Top surface has an involvement of thin tree bark.
