What is the board game in this picture
? Things I can tell from the picture: the main board is 8x8, tiles come in two colors, the tiles have writing on them (I think it's hiragana but I can't make most of it out), there is a secondary board (or possibly just piece holder?) which is 10x10 which only seems to have pieces of one color.

I didn't take this picture myself and don't have a better version or more information except that I think it was taken in Tokyo. It looks like King's Cribbage is kind of similar (two-colored wood tiles with writing), but the board size is wrong and I don't think the board could get that dense. I also checked this list
, but the few likely things I found (Vice-Versa, for one) weren't really close enough (though it's entirely possible I missed something).
