From a customer who ordered a “Clamshell Stones BLUE LABEL, Bowls, etc.”
I recieved my Go stones, thank you a lot, these are marvellous.
I see that I have to wash the slate stones because they are a little sticky. I see that I have to use a thin and non fragrant-type natural oil, can you give a example ?
Ps : I forgot that I had to pay customs tax… The final surprise wasn’t good.

From a customer who ordered a “Go Stones BLUE LABEL, Go Bowls”
I bought the 34 Blue label stones with Karin bowls. Both of them are amazing products. Came with no dents on the bowls or chips on the stones. First thing I thought when opening the package was “wow”. Everything is just so beautifully made.
Cleaning the stones when they arrived （the slate stone were all oily and sticky for preservation） was a pain but that’s the only con I can think of.
For the rest, you get an amazing product, packing. Never seen such amazing and beautiful products. The touch of the stones （especially the clam ones） is heavenly. Really has that premium quality.
If I ever need new stones, they’ll definately be from kurokigoishi!

From a customer who ordered a “Go Stones, Bowls, Board, etc”
Dear Kurokigoishiten –
My order has arrived safely and was perfect, as usual. Thank you for everything. I play and study the game of Go every day and using your magnificent Hyugakaya boards and now the special set of legendary Hyuga Special Clam Go Stones you sent me, my enjoyment and satisfaction of my games has risen considerably.
I am currently replaying the historic game played in 1697 between Honinbo Dosaku and Kumagai Honseki, the first 146 moves of which were used later by Honinbo Dochi when he contrived to play a tied game for political reasons.
I consider your products and service second to none. I am very grateful I found you.

From a customer who ordered a “Tea Caddy, Paulownia Box”
Dear Kuroki Goishiten –
My order arrived today.
The Kuro-kaki Tea Caddy is amazing and better than expected. The craftsmanship is superb and it will now become a treasured part of my collection.
I use my Hyugakaya Table Go Board every day, so it will rarely be stored in the Paulownia box you sent me, but I now know that my valuable board will be safe when I go on vacation.
Thank you once again, staff and craftsmen of Kuroki Goishiten.

From a customer who ordered a “Shogi Board, Shogi Pieces”
I received the shogi board and koma. I love the even top surface of the board, and the koma are well engraved. They are beautiful — I am looking forward to enjoying them for a long long time.

From a customer who ordered a “Go Board, Stones, Bowls, etc”
My order has arrived safely.
The Hyugakaya Table Go Board and the Blue Label Clamshell Go stones are wonderful. It is a delight to play with them.
My first game with my new Go equipment was to recreate the 1799 game of Honinbo Retsugen against Yasui Senchi Senkaku with the Kogeima Kakari opening.
Thank you all the Kurokigoshiten craftsmen and staff.

From a customer who ordered a “Premium Blossom IGO Set”
I have always wanted a Go set ever since I was little, so I am ever grateful for Kurokigoishi being the benefactor of providing me my first one, and will stay that way for a long time. I am no Go expert, but Kurokigoishi has just taken my breath away on how dedicated they are to their craftsmanship, then allowing us to use them. Everything consists of just sheer beauty, from their gorgeous smooth white go stones made out of selected clamshells, to the clear cut lines of the table Go Boards. It is practically almost impossible to not love the aesthetic quality they instill in their work. All in all, I am honored to be a customer of Kurokigoishi.
