Bring smiles to all over Japan through urban sports! !
The sports tourism event “Urban Sports Camp” will be newly born in Ogigahama, Wakayama Prefecture on Sunday, September 18, 2022.
With the Tokyo Olympics as an opportunity, urban sports have delivered excitement to the world that transcends borders and victory or defeat.
Through urban sports with such new possibilities, we aim to be a project that brings smiles to all over Japan while being an initiative that is conscious of regional revitalization.
In addition to inviting top performers in Japan and experiencing live performances, we will also hold hands-on events where you can experience each competition with professional athletes.

What is Urban Sports?
In a broad sense, it means sports born and nurtured in the city, and it is a sport derived from lifestyles, such as musicality and fashion, which is not found in conventional sports. It is a popular modern sport.
About Urban Sports Camp
“Urban Sports Camp” is a project to spread the world view of urban sports throughout Japan. We also plan to hold events in areas where urban sports are still unfamiliar, so that visitors will become fans of urban sports by creating opportunities to not only meet various competitions but also to actually experience them. I’m aiming for things
In addition, with the power of urban sports popular among young people, we aim to promote the influx of young people into rural areas and contribute to the branding of the venue. With the first event held in Ogigahama, Wakayama Prefecture, we hope to sublimate it into sports tourism.
Purpose of Urban Sports Camp
Urban Sports Camp has two major missions.
1. Acquisition and establishment of new fans
While there is a movement to spread the sport around the world and even in Japan, “acquisition and establishment of new fans” is the biggest mission for urban sports. In this event, we will design the event to realize this flow of “encounter with the competition → become a fan”.
2. Realization of regional revitalization utilizing urban sports (sports tourism)
In addition to the perspective of popularizing urban sports, we believe that the sport’s characteristic of “expecting to attract young people” can be linked to solving problems in rural areas.
By selecting sports that are deeply rooted in the region according to the venue, we will revitalize the region using urban sports, implement measures such as product planning of “local companies x urban sports”, introduction of local schools, etc. We will aim to create a system that allows for returns.
