I like to use Japanese Shogi pieces instead of this symbolic pieces, but you could do same way. You can find the correct Japanese symbols to use for pieces under wikipedia:Shogi.

As I mentioned on this page, I borrowed the symbols for the Gold and Silver Generals from alchemy, which used the sun symbol for gold and the moon symbol for silver. Well, I learned today, or yesterday as I now write, that this association wasn't limited to the Old World. While reading Ignatius Donnelly's <I>Atlantis: The Antediluvian World</I>, I came across this curious bit of information: 'The Peruvians called gold the tears of the sun: it was sacred to the sun, as silver was to the moon'(113).

Very nice tutorial and first choice if your local Asia store doesn't sell Shogi. ;-)
