Masanobu Iwata sends us a report from another fantastic edition of 44FESTA in Japan!
The event was held last Sunday, October 20th, in Yamato, and it was once again a successful event for all yo-yo enthusiasts in Japan.
The special guests this edition were the multiple-time World Champion Hiroyuki Suzuki, and Hiroyasu “Pon” Ishihara, of YoyoRecreation.
44FESTA’s traditional surprise mini-contest this time consisted in hitting a target with a yo-yo. The target? Pon himself!
The freestyle contest winner was Shu Takada, followed by the younger generation talent of Yamato Murata and Hajime Miura!
