    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.

    Czesc Vrael.

    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 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
    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

    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
