Crease Monkeys(USA) visited Japan. Players of Japan and the United States deepened friendship in tourism and daily life, not only the game.
The heavy snow struck Tokyo February 14. It was the first heavy snowfall in 13 years. Since the field was filled with snow, the game on the 15th was canceled.
To hold the game on the 16th, more than 100 players of Japan gathered and shoveled the snow. We have finished snow shoveling by noon of the 16th. So it was possible to implement the game.
