A great meet for getting your feet wet in Japanese competition and the feel of very organized, by-the-rules competition. You won`t be blown away by fierce competition, even though it is a big step up from Kanto League. This year the meet is on Saturday (usually it is on Sunday). Middle school and high school.
Everything is in Japanese, but I (Bruce Carrick, language impaired gaijin) have been taking athletes there for the past 10 years. Unfortunately, this year the meet coincides with Petty Invitational in Okinawa.
