05 Apr Akiba Hirotaka Wins the North Japan Yo-yo Contest!
Yoyorecreation team member Akiba Hirotaka took home 1st place in the 1A division of the North Japan Yo-yo Contest held on 25 March 2017 in Chitose Hokkaido.
Having already dazzled the crowd by placing top in the preliminary round using the Dazzler, Hirotaka also showed some incredibly fierce skill in the finals.
Not stopping at being an incredibly accomplished chopstick player, Hirotaka has further honed his skill and produced new tricks using a whole range of finger spaces with seemingly little effort.
Despite there being some minor mistakes towards the end of his performance, Hirotaka’s solid performance earned him a deserved NJ title.
We look forward to watching Hirotaka’s committed and distinctive style continue to evolve over the remainder of the contest season.
