Japan Football Classics #6

Ah, this is my ball, or yours ?
After their performance, they allowed us the viewers play the game. I also tried and enjoyed. It was fun but difficult to kick the ball precisely.

@Z: You're right. Not perfect round. About 150g, I heard.

I just watching all your latest pictures on this traditional game of ball that I did not know. Japan is a country for us French people a bit mysterious, and we know more about sumo very popular in France and a Japanese football player who plays in France : Daisuke Matsui.
Yesterday I watched the match on TV the quarter-finals of the Women's World Cup Soccer Germany Japan won by the Japanese.
Your series is very interesting and thank you for your comment. The photography is also a medium of
exchange between peoples.
Greetings from France, and soon on aminus3.
