Gold leaf stamping craftsman Mr. Norifumi Fujisawa

Born in Kyoto City, he graduated from the Kyoto Traditional Crafts College of Butsugu (Buddhist altar) gold leaf stamping course in 1998, and studied under Masaharu Okamoto, a traditional craftsman and a contemporary master gold leaf stamping artist.
He was involved in gold leaf processing for shrines and temples throughout Japan.
He later became independent as "Kyo Kinpaku Oshi Tokowaka" (Kyoto Gold Leaf Pressing Tokowaka) and obtained the title of "Certified Craftsman of Kyoto" approved by the Governor of Kyoto Prefecture in 2015.

In recent years, he has been actively expanding the scope of his activities by managing projects that fuse traditional gold leaf techniques with contemporary art and other genres, holding gold leaf workshops and solo exhibitions in France, Asia, and other regions, and actively communicating the appeal of gold leaf stamping both domestically and internationally.

Board craftsman Mr. Torayoshi Yoshida

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.
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.

●Go stones

White Go stones : Clamshell Go stones Premium Blossom grade size 34, platinum leaf stamped by Gold leaf craftsman Norifumi Fujisawa and the surface are finished with clear Japanese lacquer.

Black Go stones : Nachi-guro slate Go stones size 34, Gold leaf stamped by Gold leaf craftsman Norifumi Fujisawa and the surface is finished with clear Japanese lacquer.
Both gold and platinum leaf do not cover the entire surface of the Go stones, but instead leave the color part of the Go stones intact, while the beauty of the gold and platinum leaf shines through.
This product named it "Dazzling Go stones "煌 KIRAMEKI"" because of the pattern of each piece, which is made by hand with great care and each piece shows a different expression.

●Go board : Board craftsman Mr. Torayoshi Yoshida made China grown Kaya 9X9 Go Board Masame 1.0 Sun (about 34 mm thick)
*Lines are Tachimori finished.

The 9X9 Go board was made by a board craftsman, and all the processes from black lacquer coating of the base to gold leaf stamping and coating were done by craftsmen with a lot of time and care.
Without covering the entire surface of the five surfaces except the top, it is made to gleam with the beauty of the gold leaf while also preserving the color of the black lacquer.

The bottom of the Go board has a small gold leaf inscription on the bottom as proof of the work of Mr. Norifumi Fujisawa, "Kyo-Kinpaku-Oshi-tokowaka".
*Please check the photo image.

●Go bowls : Keyaki [zelkova] miniature Go bowls for 9X9 Go Board

The front side is made glittering with the beauty of gold leaf while retaining the color of black lacquer.

  • Go stones : Gold and platinum leaf finish Dazzling Go stones size 34 "煌 KIRAMEKI" by Gold leaf craftsman Norifumi Fujisawa
    Quality : The highest quality with almost no scratches that has cleared strict selection standards.
    Grade (striped pattern) : The spacing between the stripes is a little coarser than "Snow grade", which is about 70% or less of the total.
    Thickness : size 34 : White Go stones/9.5 ㎜, Black Go stones/9.8 ㎜
    Diameter : White Go stones/21.9㎜, Black Go stones/22.2㎜
    *Our black Go stones are 0.3 mm large thicker and 0.3 mm large diameter than the same size of white Go stones.
    The reason is that white is an expanded color, so when you see white Go stones and black Go stones of the same diameter and thickness with the human eye, the black Go stones look a little smaller.
    So we adjusted them so that they look the same size.
