TOKYO SPORTS EXPO 2014


TOKYO SPORTS EXPO 2014

An autumn of sport has arrived! On October 11th (Sat.) and 12th (Sun.), the "TOKYO SPORTS EXPO 2014," a participatory sports event, will be held at both Komazawa Olympic Park and Showa Kinen Park in Tokyo.
Sponsored by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Tokyo Sport Benefits Corporation, "TOKYO SPORTS EXPO 2014" aims to allow visitors to experience sport in a relaxed frame-of-mind, and for them to develop an interest in sport. Being the 50th anniversary of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games of 1964, this year's expo will be held simultaneously at two venues over two days, and it is expected that some 150,000 visitors will attend the event.

Komazawa Olympic Park

During the two days, there will be a soccer clinic conducted by Kunishige Kamamoto, who played for Japan in the Tokyo Olympics; and a wrestling clinic conducted by triple Olympic gold medalist Saori Yoshida, etc. In addition to sports clinics featuring instruction by Olympic medalists and other top-class athletes, visitors will also be able to experience a wide range of other sports clinics including popular pastimes such as sports climbing and double-dutch, etc. They will even be able to try their hand at bubble soccer, a sport that has just arrived in Japan, etc.

Talk shows featuring athletes and comedians

Furthermore, the festivities will also include talk shows featuring athletes and comedians, as well as character-themed attractions for younger children. A full program of stage events will also be offered. The special Memorial Place Photo Hunt Project will also be conducted. This project encourages visitors to bring photos of locations within Tokyo related to the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. Visitors who bring photos will receive a commemorative gift. We encourage everyone, both young and old; to come and enjoy this autumn event that features a full program of sports.
