The following video was uploaded on YouTube.

The author of the video described, "This video is the first part in a series of videos that will introduce Shogi, the Japanese form of Chess, to Chess players. This first video introduces some Shogi equipment that is suitable for Chess players who don't know any Japanese, namely my Symbolic set, and it explains why Shogi uses wedge-shaped, double-sided pieces. It does not cover all the rules or even how all the pieces move. I will cover these subjects in subsequent videos."
