Seattle Go Center is one of four outside of Japan sponsored by the Japanese professional Go organization, The Nihon Ki-in The others are located in New York City, Amsterdam, and San Palo, Brazil. The Go centers were founded by Iwamoto Kaoru as a way to spread the game into the west and further cultural understanding between Japan and the rest of the world.
If anyone is interested in learning more about Go, feel free to PM me. You can also drop by the Go center any time, visitors are always welcome. I'm usually there on Tuesday nights and would be glad to show you around.
