Tendo Onsen

Tendo City, adjacent to Yamagata City to the north, is noted for producing 'shogi' (Japanese chess) pieces, accounting for 95 percent of their total production in Japan. An event known as "Ningen Shogi" (human chess), held during a cherry blossom festival, includes shogi chess matches in which people play the roles of the the chess pieces, adding poetic charm to the spring season. During your visit you can watch a demonstration of how shogi pieces are made, and if booked in advance, you can also try your hand at making your own original shogi piece to keep as a souvenir.
