It is our great pleasure to inform you that we plan to hold The Nihon Ki-in Summer Go School from 27 August 2012 for 10 days in Japan. (Most of the programs will be held at The Nihon Ki-in.)

About Summer Go School

The Summer Go School is the intensive go program only for overseas go players who wish to get stronger in a short time period and/or to experience, feel and touch the world's preeminent Go culture in Japan! To help you become stronger, our selective professionals will zealously give you intensive go sessions in English such as teaching games and lectures from morning to evening during the period. (In case, interpreters will be provided whenever needed to assist the professionals or participants.) For further information on the Summer School, please find attached file.

Special Tours

There are several special tours to be arranged for the participants of The Summer School. For example, we plan to give the participants a special tour for 1st game of the 37th Meijin title match, which will be held on 30 and 31 August 2012 in Tokyo.
