Jishogi is the rule that when both Kings have reached the opponent camp, the games is a draw (or decided by material count).

But abolishing that rule is similar to abolishing the rule that 3-fold repetition is a draw in Chess. The latter won't make perpetuals less common in games, and continuing those forever achieves nothing. Likewise, abolishing the jishogi rule won't make the problem go away that it is very easy to defend a King once it is the enemy camp.
