Study Go in Japan
Hello, my name is Cho Seokbin or 趙錫彬 in Japanese. I have learned to play Go as a Korean Insei in Seoul and now live in Japan. Between 2005 to 2008 I was living in Germany, where I held various Go workshops. My KGS nickname is bin7674 and my current European rating is 2801.
Here in Nagoya, I have opened a small Go club that is frequented by casual players as well as students that have the ambition to become a professional Go player. In 2013, one of my students became a Nihon Kiin professional.
The Club is one of the few Go Salons that offer visitors from other countries to study with Japanese Inseis. This is a unique opportunity to improve your Go while enjoying the atmosphere of a typical Japanese Go Salon. Several students from all over the world have already visited my club and they all loved the experience.
The price for the club, accommodation and food is US$ 350 per week and shall be paid in advance in Japanese Yen at the current exchange rate. The price includes the membership and entrance to the club, which is open from 1pm to 8pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You will also receive 5 free private lessons from me or another teacher, which can be a teaching game, a review of your games or for example special lessons in the opening, fighting or end game. You will also get some homework.
The price includes accommodation at the house of the mother of my wife. You will have your own simple room, free laundry service and there is of course wireless Internet in the house. My stepmother will prepare breakfast and traditional Japanese dinner for you. However on a few days, she might not be at home and you would need to arrange to eat out.
Note that lunch and public transportation are not included in the price. You can get decent meals for around 700 Yen and the monthly train ticket costs about 25000 Yen.(600yen one way)
The house is a bit far from Nagoya close to the Imaise Station. You would need to take the train to go back and forth, which takes about 30 Minutes to Nagoya Station and about 45 Minutes to the Go club.
If you stay for more than 4 weeks or longer, the price for the club and accommodation/food will be only US$ 280 per week. Also, if you choose to find your own accommodation in Nagoya, the price will be reduced to US$ 180 and finally, if you have your own accommodation and you stay for 4 weeks on longer, the price for the membership and the private lessons will be only US$ 140 per week.

I am looking forward to hearing from you!
