You should specify whether this is an immediate winning condition (like capturing a King), or a delayed one (which could still be trumped by capturing that King on the last rank, in an 'after-move'). Or, in other words, whether the move to last rank must be legal (= avoid stepping into check). This is especially important since regular Shogi does not really have a checking rule like Chess; exposing your King to capture just loses the game, rather than qualifying as an illegal move that has to be retracted to continue the game from there.
