This is a Japanese fast-game tournament introduced in 2014. As its name suggested, only tournament winners of the previous year are invited to play. Plus, one player voted by Go fans joins them. Although completely unrelated, this looks like a good replacement of the discontinued Japanese NEC Cup. The sponsor is IGO & SHOGI CHANNEL, who also supports Ryusei and Female Kisei tournaments.
