The present situation of Fukushima Dragon Boat Academy

We started Fukushima Dragon Boat Academy (FDBA) since July at Lake Inawashiro in Fukushima, and the first season of FDBA was just over.  

As conclusion of 2014 season, we participated in Saitama Dragon Cup in November 2nd. We won our first match as “Bandaisan Dragon “and “Inawashiro Dragon”. Both names are from our hometown, Inawashiro. Both boats are  paddled  by adult from Tokyo and children from Fukushima. We all were nervous, but both did really good job and finally “Bandaisan Dragon “ won to Semi-final.


After we finished our match, it was time to study Dragon Boat. There were strong boat team from all over Japan. The most amazing moment was category of 2000m. Our cheer was getting big, while match was coming to the end. At the end of the day, many people welcomed us to Dragon Boat. When I saw children were talking with people from other team with team card. We can not help to held with big hope.

2 weeks later, We did the last practice at Lake Inawashiro in this season. Winter in Fukushima was already begun, but we could spend really good time with many families and friends of children.
We ended our 2014 season with bow.

Our journey to show Cheerful and Beautiful Fukushima is to be continued. We would like to ask for your help.
