FISE Action Sports World Series

3 days of action sports in downtown Hiroshima.

FISE began as an ambitious student project to showcase urban and alternative sports in Montpellier in southern France back in 1997. It has since developed into a international phenomenon. This weekend, the FISE World Series arrives in Japan for the first time in what is undoubtedly the best use so far of Hiroshima’s former baseball stadium site.

Held over three days, the very impressive purpose built stadium will host BMX, Skateboarding, Roller skating, Parkour, Bloc Climbing and Breakdancing. General admission is free (though registration is required) and there are music events in the evening that require tickets and a premium viewing zone which you have to pay to enter.

The weather is looking a bit dodgy on day one, but should be OK on Saturday and Sunday.

To apply for free admission spectators are supposed to pre-register and get a QR code which they will show when they enter. The registration form is, of course, only in Japanese, but a little message states

This registration site is only available in Japanese. If it is difficult for you to register in Japanese, you can register at the entrance of the venue under the correspondence of English-ready staff.
Thank you.

Who knows, it might be quicker to get in if you go the No Nihongo route.
