Castling is valid both ways. (I didn't think about this when I typed this, but I agree it is good to allow castling both ways.)

This is a good question. The pieces are not arranged in a Castling-friendly way in Shogi, so I can see why putting a Shogi piece in a FIDE location might make Castling valid. It is for A. Black to give the actual answer, but it would be my guess that Castling is allowed.

Can king castle with flying chariot?

Shogi promotability would indeed benefit the Bishop more than the Rook - compare Shoxiang 108, in which the Rooks are Xiang Qi but the Bishops Shogi.

Good, but why there is no piece... I don't remember it's real name... Chess players calls it bishop and it promotes to dragon horse... Why not replace one of bishops with it?

This is like Chess without those drawish endgames! The koma are a wee iffy, though. Why did you choose them?

Here are the promotions as you asked: chess pawn to rook or bishop or knight or queen (your choice), shogi pawn to gold general, flying chariot to dragon king. Shogi pieces are unpromoted when captured.

May you give us a better explanation about promotions?. What are the possible promoted pieces in this game once a piece (Chess Pawn, Shogi Pawn or Flying Chariot) has reached the last rank?
