Weiqi was born in China and spread to Japan more than 1400 years ago. It was popular among the aristocrats during the Heian Era (794-1192). In the Edo era, the general public began to contact go, according to the daily news of Japan on the 20th. The famous ancient Japanese chess player, Mr. benyinfang, once wrote an introduction to go called National Tourism.

At present, not only is sumo a national skill of Japan, but also the Japanese Professional Baseball Association has positioned baseball as immortal national skill. I hope that the signboard of Guoji can let more people understand weiqi, said Yoshio Hashimoto, a supervisor of the Japanese Chess Academy.
