Masanobu Iwata brings us the goods from yet another edition of 44FESTA! This edition was held on November 23rd.
Look at that venue! 44FESTA has the perfect setting for yoyoing and that’s one of the reasons it’s one of our favorite regular yo-yo events in Japan. Even living legend John Ando made a guest appearance!
A fun mini-contest was held once again. This time, a Long Sleeper Pass was the day’s challenge, with the winner being determined by the lucky player who had the yo-yo when the sleeper died.
The freestyle contest had 22 players, and we’re once again thrilled to see the new generation giving the old-timers a run for their money!

The regular 44FESTA events will resume with vol.5 on January 18th, followed by vol.6 on February 23rd. Be there!
