‘12th Minkaen Cup’, a beigoma (traditional Japanese spinning top) tournament where all ages can participate, from elementary school students to adults.
Before the tournament, Beigoma Beginner’s Workshop, a free class on using and modifying the beigoma, is also available.
There are beigoma and string available for rent, so you can also participate if you come empty-handed.
Top players will be awarded certificates and prizes, and the champion will also get a temporary possession of the trophy – until the next tournament. Participate and test your skill!
