Tohoku:Sporting Goods Stores
Sports are very popular in Japan and they are watched and played by many people. In urban areas, sports such as futsal, tennis, running walking, bouldering, yoga, and Pilates are popular and many enjoy these sports before or after work and on days off. Therefore, there is a strong demand for sporting goods. Sporting goods stores offer products to meet a range of needs, including improved performance, comfort during difficult weather conditions, and fashion sense.
Some Japanese sports fashion brands have been garnering attention overseas, and there are cases of collectors visiting Japan to buy certain items. Additionally, as Japan is surrounded on all sides by sea and stretches a great distance from north to south, marine sports, winter sports, mountaineering and golf have all enjoyed long popularity. Naturally, stores offer goods for all these interests.
