People take part in a game of human shogi in Sekigahara, Gifu Prefecture, on Oct. 15, 2017. Dressed in full armor, the participants positioned themselves on a giant board -- with Mount Sasao in the background. The match took place on the site where the decisive Battle of Sekigahara occurred in 1600, and the result of the shogi match was the same as the famous battle 417 years ago -- a victory for the Tokugawa side.
