Though I’ve never explicitly stated this, one of my goals with this blog is to bring the most exciting and interesting stories about go that I think anyone with even only the slightest interest in go would enjoy while documenting my own journey. I try not to replicate the amazing work done by GoGameGuru and others who document the details of the professional world and serve as a better source for those intricacies of the go world.
So in light of that, I am really excited to introduce the very first guest post on this blog! For those who don’t know, there’s an active forum on go called Life in 19x19, and I came across a magnificent post on a tour of the shop of Mr. Kuroki (who owns the Kuroki Goishi Ten shop which sells high quality equipment). It reminded me of ChiyoDad’s post on yunzi manufacturing, so I immediately contacted the author and requested his permission to repost his post here on the blog in order to further spread word of his awesome trip. And since you’re reading this, it shouldn’t surprise you to hear that I got permission! So without further delay, hope you enjoy Erythen’s virtual tour through Mr. Kuroki’s shop!
