Asia shogi tournament is cancelled

I have read some bad news from the twitter account of the Sidney Shogi club. It seems that this year the Asia Shogi tournament has been canceled due to coronavirus.

Last year, 57 players from 7 different countries met in Bangkok to dispute the Asia Shogi tournament. Some professional players joined as referees and offered some simultaneous exhibition games.

I couldn’t any info about who was the winner of last year’s tournament. If someone knows it please share it!

You can see some pictures at the Kawaguchi Oono website.
