The First International Canoe Competition in Kyotango City!

Hello, nice to meet you. Thank you for your visit our website.

This is my first post. We launched the dedicated website for the World Masters Games2021 Kansai to be held in Kyotango City, Kyoto Prefecture. At Kumihama Bay Canoe Course in Kyotango will be held 3 types of canoe competition, Canoe marathon (including Para canoe), SUP (Stand up Paddle Boarding) and Dragon boat. The competition schedule is 4days from Sunday, May 16th to Wednesday, May 19th, 2021. We are preparing some events such as dances and drums unique to Japan and stalls serving local seasonal foods and cuisines at the venue.

To canoeing participants, your family and friends, we would like to give you the WMG2021 latest information and tell you about seasonal foods/cuisines, relaxing hot springs and breathtaking sceneries, etc. in Kyotango. Please look forward to the updated information.

To everyone thinking about whether to participate the WMG2021, an entry qualification of the WMG is only “Anyone above the age of 30”. Even beginners easily participate in the international competition. Canoeing has become very popular as a leisure sport in recent years because it is easy for beginners to get started. Why don’t you join us and have fun with people who are different generations, athletic abilities and countries?

We are looking forward to your entry.
