Tanigawa Kouji no Shogi Shinan II (谷川浩司の将棋指南II? lit. Kouji Tanigawa's Instructional Shogi) is a simulation of the Japanese board game known as Shogi (which is considered the Japanese version of Chess) developed by Pony Canyon for the Famicom Disk System in 1987, and the Famicom and MSX in 1988. It is a sequel to the original Tanigawa Kouji no Shogi Shinan which was only published for the MSX in 1986. Conversely, the sequel, Tanigawa Kouji no Shogi Shinan III was only published on the Famicom.

Tanigawa Kouji no Shogi Shinan features Shogi legend Kouji Tanigawa, a top ranked player in Japan, as a teacher to the player on how to play Shogi, and how to deal with difficult situations that arise in the game. This game saw multiple releases on Nintendo's home console. The original release was published on the Famicom Disk System with the subtitle Meijin he no Michi (名人への道? lit. Expert's Course). Then, in 1988, it was published again in cartridge format for the Famicom. Other than the format, these two releases were identical. However, later that same year, the game was republished for the Famicom Disk System, this time containing a different selection of puzzle arrangements on the B side of the disk than those found in the previous disk or cartridge version. The second disk version was subtitled Tsume Shogi (詰め将棋? lit. Shogi puzzle).
