The history of Shogi players and Jinya

Matsukaze no Ma

Matsukaze no Ma was moved from Oiso by Kuroda Clan to welcome Emperor Meiji. The shape of Kiri tree and Kiku flower is engraved on Japanese style upper wall called Ranma. People started to know about Jinya as a place where Shogi and Go players vie for the title of the king after Showa era.

More than 300 title matches were held at Jinya to date. Yoshiharu Habu took the title of the king in 52nd title match and accomplished a historic achievement in Matsukaze no Ma. That was his 80th win in his career which was the same number as unbreakable record of 80 wins by 15th Master of Yasuharu Oyama.
