Cancellation of Japan Chess Championship and Golden Week Open

Dear participants of the Championship and GWO,   With the recent development on the pandemic situation, NCS has made the decision to cancel the Japan Chess Championship 2021 and the Golden Week Open. We can not express our sadness to come to this conclusion but everyone’s safety is our top priority. We appreciate your messages expressing your understanding. Thank you so much. We can not wait for the day when we all can relax and enjoy OTB chess together. Hopefully the day will come soon.


In the meantime, please stay safe everyone!
Thank you,
