December is about to begin, and the mountains, including Yatsugatake, are completely snow-covered. It has become a winter scenery. The living area where the roads pass is still free of snow this season, but usually around the beginning of the year it snows several times, and the area where the houses are lined up becomes white.
Such a snowy season is a snowball fight. On snowy days, you may see children playing by throwing snowballs, but there are also snowball competitions that adults can enjoy as sports, not just play. This is the 14th Yamanashi snowball competition in this season.
This tournament is a snowball tournament as a sport, officially recognized by the International Snowball Fighting Union. Compete for flags and compete for points.
This time, it will be held on March 8, 2020. A special venue will be set up at Sun Meadows Kiyosato Ski Resort in Kiyosato to compete in the qualifying league and the final tournament.
The target is a team of junior high school students and above. The Yamanashi Preschool Elementary School Snowball Tournament is also scheduled to be held on March 7 and is currently accepting applications.
If you enjoy a serious snowball fight, please join us!
