Hungary Sakura Cup 2024
We are delighted to announce the 29th Hungary Sakura Cup with a focus on children, juniors, and youth kendokas. The tournament aims to foster new generations. It is also a great way to make new friends from other countries, so come join us for a weekend of formative experiences.
Please note that due to the increase in the number of children and juniors Hungary Sakura Cup focuses on the younger generations only. Therefore, after 28 years we will not organize events for kendo practitioners who are over 21 years old.
