We also had some mini contests. This is from the 10-second sleeper contest. There were also some players that did other tricks instead of just a sleeper, haha…



Rei tried it with an unexpected top-on spin!!



The final 3 competitors!



Rei won with an EXACT 10 seconds with his top-on spin. Wow!



C3yoyodesign Rising Force team member Ryuichi Nakamura also showed his skills in a demo performance.

For the final few demos a ton of non-yo-yo-people came in to watch. They seemed really impressed with the performances!



The Forward Pass Speed Challenge mini contest. This time we had General and Pro (Sponsored and contest-ranked players) Divisions.



Congratulations to our General Division winners!



In the Pro Division, Rei won again!

[Zac & Gentry Japan Trip: Day 18] Nagoya Shopping

Today we woke up late after a long night at around 10 am. After waking up and getting ready for the day Hilary took us to Sakae in Nagoya. We went to Uniqlo and H&M. We were both excited to go to Uniqlo because back home in the US we do not have any of their stores near us. After shopping we met up with Hiro for dinner at an amazing yakitori restaurant. We were brave and tried all different parts of the chicken. Some tasted better than others, but it was still great.


[Zac & Gentry Japan Trip: Day 16&17] 2014 Japan Yo-Yo Tour: Osaka and Okayama


First stop, Osaka. After about a two-hour drive, we arrived in Osaka and set up for the first day of our tour. We had no idea what to expect. This show was in a reserved hall so it was mostly yo-yo players there to hang out and watch. We hung out with all the players, took pictures, held mini games, and performed for everyone. We are both feeling much more confident with our routines. Overall, we had a lot of fun in Osaka, and are looking forward to the next stop!
Second stop, Okayama. We drove half way to Okayama, and met up with Yoshi to have dinner. That night we also stayed at a hotel that was very different compared to any hotels we have stayed at in the US. The next day we did some sightseeing in Okayama before the show. The venue at this stop was very different than in Osaka. This time we were in a shopping mall, so there were a lot more people who weren’t yo-yo players watching. This stop was equally as fun as Osaka, and we think everyone had a great time at both shows.
After the show we drove back to Nagoya and arrived at about 10:00 pm. We stayed up watching and critiquing yo-yo videos with Hiro. We finally went to sleep at 5 am.
