<Important Notice> About the New Organization Name

Thank you for all your opinions and suggestions about the new website and also about the new organization!! We appreciate any comments that we receive.

We would like to inform you of our decision to change the name of the organization. After announcing that we would be forming a new entity under the name, Japan Chess Federation, we were informed that somebody applied for a trademark for “Japan Chess Federation” on December 25th 2018. As a result, we decided that it would be prudent to register the entity using a different name. We are formally organized under the name “National Chess Society of Japan”.

We will be updating the website with the new name.


NCS President, Yumiko Hiebert
