Japanese Ambassador's Cup, 6th edition, Vatra Dornei,Romania

The first five editions of the Japanese Ambassador’s Cup were organized in Bucharest, 2007-2011, by members of the Saijo club, led by Catalin Taranu 5p, in close partnership with the Embassy of Japan in Romania. This event held great significance for the Romanian Go community, sparking enthusiasm and inspiration for the organization of other large events like the Shusaku Cup or Iasi Cup. We’re thrilled to announce that this tradition will continue after many years. The stunning Casino building from Vatra Dornei, an emblematic historical monument brimming with history, is the planned location, though the venue is yet to be confirmed.
