Goban by Shinkaya Japanese.

Go board, Shinkaya Goban (shin-kaya) Japanese 3cm. Solid wood. Type: goban, board, go game.



Originally, traditional Japanese boards were made from a Japanese wood called Kaya. Because of the very high price of this precious wood, the Japanese have been switching to another type of wood with an aesthetic similar to kaya but less expensive. Thus, today, most Japanese boards are made from a wood called Shin kaya (shin means «new » in Japanese). It is also called Alaskan pine or asperata picea.
