Execution

We developed more than 50 types of Yuru Sports.

We brought about a Yuru Sports movement and held a Yuru Sports Festival.

Currently Yuru Sports is receiving so much attention the Commissioner of the Japan Sports Agency has also tried it, and we are creating a further movement involving local governments, universities, and sporting goods manufacturers.

Outcome

Section Manager at the Sports Agency’s Sports for Health Division said, "I’d like to lower the mental hurdle for sports, like Yuru Sports does, popularizing sports people can easily enjoy"– The Asahi Shimbun

?Participants: 10,000+ people

?Picked up by more than 150 media outlets including major TV stations.

?No ad spending. However, the exposure in converted advertisement costs is over 1.69 billion yen.

?Picked up on overseas media (Reuters) and invited to events overseas (Thailand).

We succeeded in redefining sports, not as something that only the chosen can compete at, but as something that everyone can enjoy equally.

“Sports for ALL, truly for ALL.”
