The Tokyo Bilingual Chess Club is to bring chess into the classrooms of as many schools in Tokyo as possible, with the aim of establishing a thriving chess culture in the community at large.
Interschool Chess is one of the ways in which Tokyo Bilingual Chess Club is working to achieve this by bringing schools in the community together regularly for events and competitions.
