(Headquarters: Iwaki City, Fukushima Prefecture, Representative: Junichi Nishizawa). We won 2nd place at the 31st Fire Knife Dance World Championship held at the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu, Hawaii.

Two players from the Spa Resort Hawaiians participated: Fumiya Mua (second time) and Ryota Afi (first time). *Please see below for the details of the tournament.

This was Fumiya Mua’s second attempt since 2019, and he passed the preliminary round in 1st place and was selected as one of the three finalists who will advance to the final round.
Incidentally, Afy Ryota, who was participating for the first time, unfortunately lost in the preliminary round.
・Day 2: Final round (3 participants)
In the final round, he appeared second and showed off his magnificent performance. Supported by the loud cheers of the audience, they finished in second place. He is the second Shiba Ora member to achieve this feat, following his older brother, Yuya Matsushima (real name: Yuya Matsushima), who became the first Asian to win second place in the 2018 tournament.

・Career
When he was a child, he was fascinated by the fire knife dance he saw on a family trip to Hawaiians, and began practicing with his older brother Yuya by imitating it. With no master to teach him, he desperately collects literature and video materials and continues to practice on his own, such as by spinning a thick wooden stick on the riverbank. Their efforts and technical skills were recognized, and the brothers joined the company in April 2016. My brother will be on stage with me as “Bar Yuya”.
