I have created a page for this modern Shogi variant.  I am not 100% certain of a couple of things, though.  I assume the goal is to checkmate, not capture, the King but the wikipedia page does not say and I could find almost no other information.  For a variant with commercial sets, it doesn't look to be very popular, although that could be simply because I'm conducting my web searches in English.  I also do not know if checkmating the King with a Pawn drop is forbidden as it is in conventional Shogi.

If anyone has any additional information about these points, or anything else that should be included for that matter, please post and I will update the page.
