"GODIANA" is a Go set tailor-made for a time to face yourself.

"GODIANA" is a Go set of a 5X5-ro Go board and a Clamshell Go stones, created with a focus on "time to face yourself" rather than just not only "time for fun and games".
We named it "GODIANA" from "GO", which means "Go" overseas, and "DHYANA", which means "Zen" in Sanskrit.
Our motto is "Nichi-Nichi Kore Go-Jitsu", which is a pun on the Zen philosophy of "Nichi-Nichi Kore Kou-Jitsu".
It means, "This moment when you are playing Go is always important".

「日日是好日」"Nichi-Nichi Kore Kou-Jitsu" is one of the "Zen words (禅語)", a short phrase that describes the teachings of "Zen (禅)".
The meaning is that "every day is wonderful," but it can also be interpreted as "we should strive to make every day a good day".
It can be further interpreted as "It is wrong to think of each day as good or bad, happy or sad.
And most important things is always think of the present moment as important, or to think that every day is a good day, or to accept things as they are.

We have included the feel of the Hamaguri Go stones, the sound of the stones hitting the Kaya Kaya board, which is a high quality board material, and even the maintenance time after use, so that you can spend time alone to face yourself.

Busy modern people have limited time to face themselves.
This set is a compact set that can be easily carried around for outside use or alone time in the study, and can also be well cared for.

The use of authentic materials makes it a great gift for those who will take good care of a good product for a long time.
It is also recommended for those who are looking for a new hobby.

The game of Go is basically a competition between two players, but this product is a Go set that is specialized for a single player to compare their thoughts while lining up a game record (kifu) and feeling the sound of the stones and the touch of the board.

The amount of time you spend alone with yourself varies from person to person.
Some people spend it in their own room, while others spend it in nature.
The compact design is designed to suit the time you spend alone.

The GODIANA crafted Go bag is designed to hold a Go board and stones necessary for playing Go.
