    Hi Miyuki,

    The station nearest to our home in Nara is Tomio ( 富雄 ), and I dont really mind about the day and the time that the clubs are open.

    Best regards,
    jhirata

    Nope, we shipped our car from Japan to NewZealand a few years ago, but I dont really mind walking if the club isnt far from the stations. ( 1 to 3 km )

    Hi, jhirata

    Great!
    If you have a chance to come to Tokyo, let's play badminton together!

    Almost Japnese players plays 2-3times a week in some clubs. So if you join a club, somebody will give you infomation of other clubs.

    Enjoy!
    Miyuki

    I want to play badminton now!

    Hi Miyuki,

    I am Thomas Taro, half japanese, living in Sweden. I will be in Tokyo from 24/12 2007 to 11/1 2008. Can I play badminton with you during this period? Also, I wonder if you can recommend any clubs with training weekdays between 24/12 to 11/1..

    About me: I train in a club in Stockholm 2-3 times a week + competitions maybe 2 times a month. I have played for around 10 years. I like both singles and doubles. I speak japanese, but not very good - no practice in Sweden :(

    ThaNK YOU!

    Hi,ThomasTaro

    Yes, you can play in the period.
    It takes 30min from Azabu-juban to our nearest station by train.

    Some non-Japanese said to me that they want to play on that period.
    If it is possible, I hope that we all play together:)

    I will send a mail to your PM in this forum about my contact infomation.

    Talk to you later

    Hi Miyuki,

    I managed to find the right club and go there a few weeks ago, but
    do you have any idea when the clubs will usually start after the nenmatsunenshi ? I forgot to ask the organiser and I couldnt contact her either, since hotmail somehow isnt working on our computer..

    Sorry for bothering >_>

    Where to play in tokyo

    Hi there!
    I'm in tokyo for 3 weeks of work from 15march 08 to 5th Ari 08
    Am looking for a place to play.
    I'm quite a decent standard...would say intermediate?

    Thanks!

    Hi,EK
    Welcome to Japan!
    When and what time can you play?

    The period whild you stay in Tokyo is the best season in Japan because you can see many blooming cherry trees. They are very beautiful.

    Talk to you later

    Ah, how I wish that I was back in Japan again. The clubs ( and some members ) here in NewZealand are terrible.. very arrogant and unhelpful. Expensive too.. I loved how in Japan, everyone welcomed me, gave me a discount ( 500yen -> 300yen :D), and also the fact that there were practise/training sessions and free tea/snack breaks too..
