A Local Perspective on Life in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

Flag Football

A mixed group of foreigners and Japanese are getting together in Katsuragi Park at 1:00 pm on March 4th (weather permitting) to play Flag Football. They’ve done it before, they’ll do it again, and it’s lots of fun. If you’re free, please join them. There’s no tackling involved, and no prior experience needed. It’s simplified American Football, but instead of tackling the person with the ball you just need to grab one of the flags hanging on either side of their waist. Bring an extra pair of long socks (to serve as flags) if you want to play. Here are pictures from last time. If you have any questions email Marc at marc.reevenewson[AT]gmail.com. Feel free to bring friends.

Katsuragi park is in Kasuga, north-west of the intersection of Kita Odori and Nishi Odori. From the intersection of Kita and Nishi go west one set of lights (to the 7-11) and turn right (so you’re going north), take your second left and you’ll see the park on your right.

    Come one, come all. It’s lots of fun, and don’t forget the socks! Afterwards we might go to the Italian buffet in LaLa Garden.
