   New President      Ex-President

Since 2017, I had served as President for 5 years with your support. In 2020 Tokyo Olympics during term of office, I was impressed by the player’s appearance who did their best, even though both men’s national team “Samurai Japan” and women’s national team “Sakura Japan” could not get medals. The only thing I’m sorry about  is children could not watch the games lively.


This time, a new system was made, based on Sports Governance Code. The ratio of women’s executives and metabolism were achieved. Under the new president, I will continue to support Japan’s hockey in order to develop hockey more and more, as Advisor.


Executives (at the date of June 11, 2022) We’re sorry for Japanese. We will update it if the English version is readey
