Rules[edit]

Sashigane Example.png Sashigane Example Solution.png

Divide the grid into L-shaped regions. Regions can contain zero, one or more clues among circles and arrows. A circle must always be in the cell where the region containing it turns and an arrow must always be at an end of the region containing it, pointing inwards. Some circles contain numbers, that show the size of the region they are contained in.
