JSPO (official name: Japan Sports Association, Shinjuku-ku,
Tokyo/Chairman Masatoshi Ito), which creates an environment for “doing,” “watching,” and “supporting” sports, has announced that Japan will participate in the event as a guest as follows. We decided on athletes with experience representing the national team. The event will be held for two days, December 17th (Sat) and December 18th (Sun), 2022, and is a sports event where Japanese people and foreign residents (Vietnam, Ukraine, and Malaysia) will interact through sports festivals.

At this event, athletes who have participated in international competitions such as the Olympics and have experience representing Japan will participate in the afternoon, and we plan to have a program where athletes demonstrate their skills and experience competitions with athletes. I’m here.
In addition, various programs will be held, such as sports festival events unique to Japan such as “ball throwing and rolling big balls”, “boccia experience” as a universal sport, language play of each country, and “ethnic sports experience” unique to each country. We are currently looking for participants, so why don’t you take this opportunity to move your body together with the athletes who have experience representing Japan?
