I have a question about illegal moves in japanese amateur shogitournaments: It is prohibeted for spectators to give hints about illegal moves to the players? I know in european shogitournamets, it is prohibited.

"Any third person (e.g. spectators) must not give any advice to players.

However, he/she does have the right to point out any forced game end when it is clear, such as illegal move and time-up, etc. It should then be followed by both players' confirmation to decide the result of the game."
