Two boys examine a shogi board with a set of pure gold pieces against the backdrop of a giant replica of a "gold general" piece on the opening day of a gold exhibition at Takashimaya Osaka Store in Osaka's Chuo Ward on July 26, 2017. With shogi seeing a boom in popularity thanks to young prodigy Sota Fujii, gold craftsmanship company SGC Golden CASL Co., which holds the event each year, decided to make the 28-million-yen shogi pieces its featured product. The fair will run through July 31. (Mainichi)
