Kaya Table Boards

Kaya is considered to be the ideal wood for go boards, since it is superior in their color, brightness, and hardness to other kinds of wood. The golden-brown color of these boards mellows with age and, when struck with a stone, a lively sound is produced. The kaya table boards offered here are made of up to four pieces of wood, joined together and finished by master craftsmen. Their surfaces all have the highly-prized masame grain that runs straight across the top of the board.

Shell & Slate Stones

Because of their weight, color, grain, responsiveness when placed on the board, and their pleasant feel, shell and slate stones are the perfect aesthetic match to kaya boards. The black stones in these sets are made from nachiguro slate, mined in Wakayama prefecture, Japan. The white stones are made from clam shells harvested in Mexico. The white stones are classified into three types: yuki, tsuki and jitsyo. The yuki stones have clear grains which run straight across the top, while jitsuyo stones have either irregular or indistinct grain patterns
