    Smile Matsudo, Chiba

    Though I have never lived there, Matsudo is good area to play badminton. According to the city's badminton association web site, they just had Matsudo Open(named "Azalea Open" on Dec 23rd) and it seems they have tournaments almost every month !! Check this site and you had better contact city's badminton association and get club info. Good luck.

    http://www7a.biglobe.ne.jp/~matsudo_badminton_association/schedule.html

    Here is a list of registered badminton clubs in Matsudo, some of which have their web site links. Hope you can read Japanese.

    Exclamation Matsudo

    There seems to be four or five levels in each tournaments. So unless you are a national champion or professional, you will not have trouble to find your suitable level, I'm sure.

    However,
    As you are staying in Japan just for a month or so, my anxiety is that you may not be welcomed to join in local club team, and that there are not many places you can play walk-in basis. You had better contact Miyuki-san or somebody to be ready to play as soon as you arrived.

    F.Y.I. on Feb 14th they will have tournament(individual) and its deadline is Feb 3rd, to which you may join without being belonged to a club team.

    Wink Shiba-Koen, Minato-ku, Tokyo

    In Japan, Year End and New Year's last/first week are crazy busy and irregular schedules in business/school/private/local, so is badminton club.

    If you cannot search Japanese badminton club info(mostly written in Japanese) by yourself right now, it's hard for you to play during the week of Jan 8th. If you can read Japanese, it is easy to find through web site. Here are a few of them;

    http://www.h2.dion.ne.jp/~tak70/
    http://www.shibuya-badminton.ne.jp/club.htm

    If you cannot read/speak Japanese, at least you should have somebody in Japan who can help you to contact to clubs before your arrival. I'm not your person as I'm not in Japan.

    From Shiba-Koen, you can access to a place not only in Minato-ku district, but also in the other 22 districts easily by bus/train/subway. So you have more than a hundred options to choose a place to play. But you had better hurry. Good luck.

    Hi, we can play on Jan 9th in Shibuya.
    Japanese people may read this, but I have never seen Japanese who write here.

    If not, I will check some my friend club near Shiba-koen. Let me know your level and when you can.
