2023 World (Christmas) Contest in Tokyo!
« on: March 31, 2023, 10:17:46 AM »

It's official: ITSA 2023 Spintop World Contest will take place in Tokyo, December 23rd and 24th!

ITSA's International Board unanimously approved it with 12 votes in favor and 0 against.
Taka will be the "promoter" and will organize the contest for ITSA.

The venue will be the Tokyo Metropolitan Tama Mirai Center. We have booked 2 spaces (A/B) of the main exhibition hall, for a total of 1200m2 for the 2 days. It can accommodate events of up to 1,000 people. The ceiling is 10 meter high, so no problem with high tosses.





The address is:  Tokyo Tama Mirai Messe, 3-19-2, Myojincho, Hachioji-city, Tokyo 192-0046
It's on the west side of Tokyo. It takes about 45 minutes to get there from central Tokyo, but it's only a 5 minute walk from the train station.



Last time they had Koma competition in Tokyo before Covid, about 150 competitors competed for compulsory tricks. We expect a large number of koma players. Hopefully, we will also have a good representation from the rest of the world. Let's have a great spinning Christmas party in Tokyo!

The plan is to also have an online World Spintop Contest in August. That way players can develop routines during the summer. We will try to raise funds to help the highest placing player(s) who is(are) not from Japan to attend the in-person contest in Tokyo. The Christmas/New Year vacations should let students, performers and regular working adults have the time to attend the contest.

Besides the world contest, there will be other related activities. So it will be a koma and skill toy festival.
It's highly likely that we will organize a trip to visit the koma museum in Nagoya and other koma related trips.
There are lot's of things to see in Tokyo and Japan. Christmas will be a special time to be there. Don't miss it!

This sounds extremely exciting! That looks like the perfect venue for a spintop contest! If I have even the slightest chance of going by doing well in the online contest I will practice as much as possible.  8) 8)

I updated the first post to mention that the ITSA board approved Worlds unanimously, as we received the votes from the missing ambassadors.

The Facebook group of worlds in Japan is this one:

If you use Facebook, I suggest you join the group.

Taka is applying for a grant from the city. If he is successful, there will be significant resources to help more players attend.  :)

Reservations are open at the Official Hotel of the contest, the Hachioji Sky Hotel.

https://802sky.com/english.html



By staying at the same hotel, we will be able to receive financial support from the city to run the contest.

The hotel is walking distance to venue. All rooms have restroom with shower and toilet, free wifi.

We were able to secure rooms at a great group discount rate, even though it is the Christmas season (more expensive than normal season).

Group rates:

Single room (includes tax)

23th night(Sat) 7000 yen (about 48USD )

Other days 6000 yen (41USD)

Twin room (for two person in 1 room)

23th night(Sat) 12000 yen per room (82UD)

Other days 10000 yen per room (70USD)

Please note that this rate does not apply to reservations made through external booking sites (e.g. Expedia, etc.).

We recommend that you make a reservation if you are likely to come because you can cancel up to one month in advance without incurring a fee.

Booking is now open. For International Reservations, please fill this form:

https://forms.gle/JfjNGMnK4BpABd8v5

We would also like to have an idea of the number of participants from overseas as soon as possible, so we would appreciate your cooperation.

======================================================
Japanese players need to fill a different form:

世界大会の公式ホテルの予約が始まりました。

世界大会会場まで徒歩10分程度、中心部から少し離れた落ち着いた雰囲気の場所です。海外からの選手はこのホテルに宿泊予定です。

ミーティングルームもあり、夜はプレイヤーでこま談義に花を咲かすことができればと思います。都内の方も宿泊をしてコンディションを整えて、大会に臨むことをお勧めいたします。

お支払いは現地で直接ホテルにお支払いいただきます(現金、カードなど)

不明な点があればお尋ねください。

Taka organized a trial event at the same location but using half the space, with koma, yoyo and kendama: http://spingear.jp/blog/2023/06/21/sgc2023summer/

A reminder that you might get financial help to attend as long as you participate in the online contest (thread). You do not need to win the online contest, or even place in the first 3, to get partial help. As long as you demonstrate that you can do a good freestyle, you might be eligible for up to $1000 (or even more with ITSA matching) to compete in Tokyo. I assure you, coming to Japan will be an unforgettable experience.

The organizers want to have a better idea of how many players will come from overseas. If you are considering attending, even if it's conditional on getting financial assistance, please contact me by PM or email [top<a>ta0.com].
