International exchange through Go

What is Shicho?

Shicho was established for a Go exchange project between Japan and France.
Shicho is composed mainly of High school and university students from Kanagawa prefecture.
The main focus of Shicho is on the exchanges through Internet.
There are seven students in Shicho.


What we do.

We are planning to hold a team competition with Western League through KGS in early 2015.
Through the event, we hope that go players in Japan and France get to know and interact with each other more.
Also, we hope that French people will understand GoR’s philosophy.
We would like to create new connections beyond borders.
