11 December 2016: 44th Japan Cup Karate-do Championships (Tokyo)

Japanese men & women will fight or practice “kata” forms at the Nippon-budokan from 09:00 to 18:00 on 11 December 2016 during the 44th Japan Cup Karate-do Championships. This event is sponsored by Japan Karatedo Federation and a ticket costs only 2.000 yens (18 dollars)!

You can probably attend this event without us because the Nippon-budokan is easy to find (near Kudanshita subway station) and the tickets are sold on site but if you want us to accompany you there as part of a private 1-day tour in Tokyo city… let us know before Friday afternoon :)

If you wonder how exciting this karate event might be, watch the video of last year’s final for female kata:

Enjoy Japanese martial arts and Japanese culture, especially if you are a karateka in Asia!
