The 12th International Aikido Federation Congress will take place in the city of Takasaki in the prefecture of Gunma. We previously reported that the city was building a brand new sports facility to host the event, which we are all very excited about. However, Aikido is not everything and prospective attendees may well be wondering what else Takasaki might have to offer in addition to top level Aikido instruction in fantastic practice conditions. In this video, Irie Yoshinobu Shihan and Guillaume Erard try to answer that exact question. Follow them as they find out about the city and experience some of the excitement that attendees can look forward to when they visit next September. Keep in mind that this is barely scratching the surface and that all the places featured in this video are located whithin a 10 km radius from Takasaki's train station. Much more can be discovered in the rest of the region!
