And as if this weren't confusing enough, the Wikipedia page for Chu Shogi, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chu_shogi , refers to "Heisei chu shogi", which seems to be Chu Shogi with all the slow-moving pieces in hand at the start of the game, to be dropped later.  This seems to be the same as the Heisei shogi mentioned in the post in the shogivar Yahoo group.
I spent some time looking for Heisei shogi online, and found nothing conclusive in English.  I neither speak nor read Japanese, so I have to leave that research for others.
