Facilities

The largest Go faclities in this area are the Kansai Ki-in, Nihon Ki-in Umeda Go Salon and the Nihon Ki-in Kansai Headquarters. Both of them are located in the Osaka Prefecture, but since there are convinient railway services ([ext] JR-West, [ext] Osaka Metro etc.), residents outside Osaka can reach them easily.
