[shogi]size of board and pieces

Raza asked me

Hey someone once asked me this, I was wondering if you know the answer –

I am interested in the standard Shogi board size and the size of the “squares” (rectangles) on it. Can you let me know what is the actual size of it? And for Shogi pieces, I want to know the actual sizes of these also. I know that there is variation in size for each piece.

If you can tell me refer web or document that would be great thank you.

So, I will reply for this.
I don’t have accurate knowledge of Shogi board and pieces. But, there is an article about size of shogi board in Japan Wikipedia. According to it, the general length is about 36 centimeter and the general width is about 33 centimeter.

About the size of shogi pieces, I couldn’t find articles.

“game equipment” section of Shogi – Wikipediais a useful English article.

Well, I wonder why your friend asked you this question. Will your friend try to make shogi board and pieces by oneself?

    Gunjin shogi

    Hello, Raza. :-)

    It is a “Gunjin shogi” software product.
    About Gunjin shogi, I found a good article named “Link to: Gunjin Shogi”. Please refer to it.
    (Well, Gunjin means “armor” in Japanese.)

    I’m impressed and happy that you are interested in shogi and my weblog. Do you know shogi-l? It is a good mail list and I have subscribed it.
