Zayko means – a super job from team Shonan – a collaboration of the cities of Hiratsuka,Chigasaki and Oiso located at the shoreof on the pacific ocean! Under the direction of Y. Okudera (former player at the German Bundesliga) Shonan has organized a phantastic U 15 World Football Festival. Following the slogan “Play football – Win Friends” the participants from Australia, Germany, China, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Japan and Turkey experienced Japanese culture and hospilaty. Ten Boys and Girls teams played football at the highest level. Partner Schools and many volunteers supported the cultural exchange and created an atmosphere of wellbeing for all guest teams. The teenagers received frenetic support from their Japanese peers as fans during the games and introduced them into Kendo, Kanji, Origami and Otedano. Supported by the Sportgarten/Bremen/Germany , Yuzaburo Omori set up a fantastic organisation structure for the event – we say

Domo arrigato!
