The "Sports Exhibition" is a special exhibition that not only introduces sports and athletes, but also captures the wonders of sports from a scientific perspective and allows you to see the technical aspects of the people who support them.
In particular, by enhancing exhibits focusing on the evolution of tools and comparing the real things of old and new, you can feel the evolution of the tools that support athletes' records up close. In addition, the latest auxiliary equipment in parasports is also on display. In addition to watching, there is also a corner where you can actually throw a ball in a real basketball wheelchair and experience sports using human body expansion engineering.
In addition, as a related event, various people from the sports world will be invited, and talk shows and lectures will be held.

One of the commitments of the "Sports Exhibition" is to make you feel the evolution of tools by looking at the real thing. For example, do you know that spikes used in sprinting have evolved from conventional pin-with-pin spikes to having no pins? Tennis rackets have also evolved from wood to aluminum and carbon. By looking at these evolutions, I would like you to experience the excitement that cannot be obtained by letters alone. In particular, kurama made in 1964 will be exhibited in the first half of the exhibition, and the latest kurama will be exhibited in the second half of the exhibition. You can feel a lot by seeing how Kurama has changed after about 60 years.
I also focused on parasports tools. Wheelchair basketball with intense movement. In addition to displaying the real thing, there is also a corner where you can actually sit and move. Wheelchairs for racing, chair skiing, and other real things are available. You can see it up close. In the second half of the exhibition, the exhibition focuses on the measurement of athletics, and also exhibits timers for marathons, starting blocks, and videos related to the latest measurement systems. The experience corner will also be expanded by each other.

In addition to exhibitions, sports exhibitions are also enriched with various events. We invite experts from various fields such as nutrition, psychology, sports education, prosthetic orthosis and para-athletes to hold talks and experience events. It will be held with interesting content not only for those who enjoy sports on a usual day, but also for students and students who aim to work on sports in the future and become physical education teachers.
In addition, we will hold events that even small children can enjoy at any time, such as quiz rallies in the venue, support flags and table science that challenges slit animation.
