Identifying Japanese Shogi pieces.

My recommendation when learning Shogi, is to get familiarize yourself with piece with Japanese character on it. There are some symbolic shogi set and westernized set, but vast majority of Shogi material available online and in books form all uses Japanese characters. People who get used to them often says that’s easy once you remember it, but you really need to get used to it. Then one of the site visitors actually asked to create a feature to help people exercise the character recognition.

This page is my attempt to create such a quiz page. Simply drag and drop a piece to matching movement chart box. If wrong piece is dropped, nothing will happen. If the correct piece is dropped, then the drop is accepted. It has several piece set variance you can select from. Hope this type of quiz help you get familiar with Japanese piece set.
