      Clubs in Japan

      Hi,
      I will visit Japan in September/October for 3 weeks (Tokyo and Kyoto). I'll spend most time sightseeing, but I would like to play table tennis at least few times while I am there. I would like to ask if there are any "gaijin friendly" table tennis clubs in Japan ? How much does it cost to play there ? I can speak japanese a little if it helps. Of course I can look it on google, but I am curious about opinions of peaople that actually where in similar situation and found the solution.

      When you're in Kyoto and you're planning to visit Osaka as well, there's a few clubs of interest.

      HPC in Namba offers a sort of "open training" time daily: (nishi-namba-tc) for 1600yen, including some 10 minutes coaching.

      I heard this newly open club (welljou.jp/acettcosaka) offers some kind of "all-you-can-play" deal, though haven't gotten to actually going over there yet.

      The best place, in my opinion, to play evening hours 7-9pm is MT (www8.ocn.ne.jp/~kbmt) where 500yen will get you 2 hours of play against some serious high-level people, depending on the day. It's kinda off city center, though.

      Drop me a PM once you know when you're free and willing to come down from Kyoto to Osaka - perhaps we can coordinate to play some. Po polsku tez okej.

      Pozdrowienia i udanej podrozy do Japonii!

      Hey, Kobe02.

      Depends what you idea of "close" is. Around 30-40 minutes by train from either ACE or HPC. When in Kobe though, check out ppdandy.com right outside the Amagasaki station.

      I will also visit Nara from Kioto, so it would also help me if anyone knew about place to train in there

      I have found clubs in kyoto on that site. Are there any websites where I could find a sparing parter in Japan for one or two trainings (I don't know anyone there) ? If it is against the rules to post request for links to other forums then I am sorry and please let me know, so I can delete this message

      You can try posting in English, many Japanese people would be genuinely curious and willing to practice with a visiting foreigner. You might need to register an account or something like that, though.

      Hi Amuken, I am in Osaka right now, for 2 weeks. Let me know if you are interested in meeting up for some Table Tennis.

      Hi
      I can PM me when you are in Tokyo
      I usually play in Minato Sports Center near JR Tamachi station.
      If you have a good budget I suggest you visit UPTY and book a 1:1 lesson with Sakamoto an ex-pro JNT member www.upty.co.jp
      8000 tens per hour but well worth it in my opinion

      This forum really brings people together, it was great to catch up with Amekun and share tt stories in person. If there are any Table Tennis lovers in Tokyo PM me and we'll meet up for a hit.

      Hi all,

      I am a Belgian currently visiting Japan with my girlfriend, Sarah. We're currently in Kyoto and we will probably pass Hokaido for a while before going back to Tokyo. I would love to play for a bit in one of Japan's local clubs if anybody is up for it. I play second division in Spain.
      I've also coached for a while and blogged a bit last summer if you want to check out what kind of player I am: alexttbarcelona.wixsite.com

      Hope to see somebody soon

      Kind regards,

      Alex
