Junior high school students have participated in a life-size version of shogi, a traditional Japanese board game, at Himeji Castle in western Japan.
The human shogi event was held for the first time last year when a major renovation was completed and the castle's main tower reopened to the public.
Himeji castle is designated as national treasure.
On Saturday, two female professional shogi players -- one wearing a red coat and the other a blue one -- sat on a tower facing a huge 20-meter board.
They battled by moving students in armor as shogi pieces.
A 37-year-old spectator said he was thrilled to see shogi played under the blue sky as the game is usually played in a quiet indoor space.
The event is being held through Sunday.
