        Hello Billy,
        I drop by Japan club today evening At 3pm, but I found myself lost in the facility. There were no signs of Weiqi playing rooms or News on the bulletin boards.

        Could you guide me? It’s my first time there, and was disappointed to go back empty handed. But I would really like to learn GO and join a club.

        Please help.

      I also from kelantan. Hard to find playmate to play real go, only virtual go is available. My passion towards weiqi/go soon will be faded.
