    Hi, I will be travelling to Tokyo from 11th July to 19th July for a vacation but would like to maintain my skills of badminton. Does anyone know where can I find a game to play in Tokyo OR a court to book to train in Tokyo? I am an intermediate standard player, from school team in Singapore.

    Then there is another website here that introduces places that you can play badminton. Unfortunately it is all written in Japanese language too.

    http://www.geocities.jp/badmminton80tokyojapan/index.html

    Actually there a lot of nice and interesting places for you to play badminton in Tokyo. But then unfortunately most pf the website are all in Japanese language. So it will be difficult for you to understand the content in the website to know what to click next. Perhaps maybe you can try to click the links that I have posted to you first. If you cannot understand the content of the website in Japanese do let me know. I can help you to translate the content of that website for you. I know a little bit of Japanese so I might be able to help you out.

    There is also another website link here written in Japanese. Unfortunately this website is down under maintenance. But still I post this website to you because once the website is no more under maintenance, you may be able to view the content in this website with no problem.

    There is also another interesting website here about Texins Badminton Club Tokyo. You can actually register in this website in order to play at that club. But then unfortunately again this website is written in Japanese language and the content of the website is all in Japanese too. So you really need to know the Japanese language well in order to register to play in this club. Anyway here is the link.

    You can also try to click the link to the website below. The name of the badminton club is Albatross Badminton Club. The link is in English. So I think you can click on this link to find out more information about this badminton club in order to play there. You can register online too. Here is the link.

    http://www.geocities.jp/mune_albat/page4.html


    But then once you try to click on all the links in the website itself, it will all be written in Japanese language again so you really need to understand Japanese well to read through all the contents in this website.
