From 1985 until today, the history and achievements of Kitami’s training camp

The Kitami sports training camp began in 1985, originating from Meiji University’s rugby club training camp. Because it is easier to train in the low humidity nights of Kitami rather than Honshu, it became a popular spot for training. In summer, top league and university teams come to fields around the city for practice and training games.

Also, in recent years, track and field, judo, curling, skiing and various other training camps have increased in number.

There is easy access to Kitami from Memanbetsu Airport, taking about 40 minutes. Kitami also has many sports facilities, not just fields, to practice in. These include track and field stadiums, gyms, curling halls and pools. Another attraction of Kitami are the accomodations which can accommodate 3 meals a day, made from the finest ingredients Hokkaido has to offer.

In recent years, in cooperation with neighbouring municipalities, we are striving to improve participation in the camps.

From top athletes, to community teams, school clubs and sports tourism, we will accommodate all the needs of those who participate in Kitami’s training camps.
