Mukai Komoku  

Mukai Komoku is the Japanese Go term referring to the relationship between the two marked points in the diagram below.

Commonly "Mukai Komoku"  

In referring to actual positions, the term is mainly used in the case where the stones played are the same color. If we translate this as facing komoku we end up with a useful distinction between this and the situation below.

Commonly "Kenka Komoku"  

Although sometimes referred to as Mukai Komoku, there is another Japanese term for this situation, Kenka Komoku, which translates quite nicely as opposing komoku.
