Go Interests

When I was in Japan, I used to watch Go programs on Japanese TV and I have a collection of DVD recordings. I used to browse through Second-hand bookshops in Tokyo? and I have a large collection of second-hand Japanese go books.

I'm interested in encouraging people to read Japanese go books. Here's a page to help people who know no Japanese get started: Basic Japanese for Reading Go Books.

The ipad is a wonderful accessory for go players. I'm on my second now. Ipad 4 with retina display (after an ipad 2). I use it for studying go and Japanese, as well as for other purposes.

ipad software that I have:

Go programs that I use regularly

[ext] Smartgo Kifu
[ext] SmartGo Books

[ext] Tsumego Pro

Go programs that I occasionally use or previously used
