52th All Japan Championships

Japan's Team on 2010 B World Cup
 Sometimes there are countries which is very difficult to find information about Roller Hockey. One of them is Japan, and the big reason is the language. Just with a big effort using a web translate, it is possible to know more about the activity there. As all the World knows, Japan was affected by a big earthquake and after a tsunami, that destroyed mostly the north part of the country. Like other sports also Roller Hockey suffer a lot with this tragedy.
Happily the competition didn´t stop and, one more year will be disputed the main Japanese Championship, the 52th edition of All Japan Championships, proving that Roller Hockey exists there since a long time.

Concerning the teams, there are no names confirmed yet, but usually Japanese Roller Hockey is based on teams coming from national Universities.

The place of the All Japan will be Nagano Riverfront
