    JAPAN Team selection tournament

    The winners of those tournaments will be included in the Japan National Team for 2017 asian games and 2017 world championships

    on the Mens side, MIZUTANI and NIWA are already part of the team due to their rankings

    There was a group stage, 4 groups of 6 players with 2 players qualified into the following knock out tournament

    FUJIMURA - HARIMOTO
    OSHIMA - MURAMATSU
    MORIZONO - YOSHIDA Kaii
    MATSUDAIRA Kenta - YOSHIMURA

    on the Ladies side, i think ISHIKAWA ITO FUKUHARA and HIRANO are already part of the team, they are not playing this tournament
    8 players were exempt of the group stage where there were 4 groups of 6 players

    HAMAMOTO Yui / YAMAMOTO Rei

    i saw todays games live

    it was a superb battle between Matsudaira and Oshima. Matsudaira confirms he is currently the no2 Japanese player. He has beaten all his main adversaries except Mizutani recently. He has done very well in his last ITTF opens as well.

    Clearly his style has a bit changed for the better, and he seems to have some new motivation...

    Matsudaira was a constant on the team until the last two years. That is enough motivation. He had become a bit too entitled.

    I wonder if Yoshimura will be selected given that he played 3-4 against Matsudaira who won.

    On the other hand, putting in Harimoto might be a good experience for him to play in the bigger stages with his seniors on team format. Japan needs to find a replacement for mizutani after all given his age and a probable performance drop after the tokyo olympic

    Matsudaira had a awesome games and I'm glad he won the selection tournament 2 years in a row.
    So, now 3 out of 5 players are decided (Mizu, Niwa, Matsudaira) and 2 will be decided if he 1) wins nationals or 2) beat 6 or more top 30 ranked players or 3) is chosen by selectors based on performance in international tournaments.

    It'll be a toss up between Yoshimura, Oshima, Muramatsu and Harimoto.
    I would be very tempted to select Harimoto if I were the selector, especialy with Tokyo Olympic in sight but we'll see.

    Harimoto can wait a few more years. He is very very good, but still not enough to be a team member. I think Oshima should get the fourth place, he is definitely stronger than the others. Yoshimura also a good player, but I think his performance in international tournaments not as good as he really is (mentally not that good?). However Muramatsu always give his best and reaches a good stage in tournaments. Fifth place is really hard... I can see even Ueda Jin an option, if he maintains his great shape (but that's not too likely to happen). I'm still waiting for the Kenta/Niwa double back...

    Tokyo 2020 is only 4 years away. If they believe Harimoto will be good enough, no point in waiting.

    Ishikawa, Ito, Hirano, Kato is in by World rankings and points system. Remaining 1 will be decided by the results of the Nationals. Winner is in automatically if it's won by anyone outside of this 4. If ishikawa wins for example, it'll be decided by points
    system so toss up between Hashimoto and Sato. Fukuhara is not in contention as she'll lose her rankings next month and also not participating in the Nationals.

    wow, it looks more and more like we will see less and less of Fukuhara in the JNT, maybe her time is already over...
    she said she just wants to become a good housewife...

    Tokyo 2020 is a thing, but other events coming sooner is a different matter.
