Chimera Games Vol.8

An unusual combination of extreme Japanese street sports and music, the Chimera games is a one-of-a-kind display which will leave you lost for words. Among some more familiar sports like skateboarding and various bike-based displays, you can see some more uncommon events like “Double-Dutch”—which is like extreme skipping. Done in time to music, on another participant’s shoulders and very very fast, this is probably the highlight of the show. Marketing itself as ‘minor entertainment’ the show is not being humble as such, merely comparing itself to the alternative of ‘major entertainment’ like baseball and soccer. The event encourages children to participate and try new sports, keen to introduce them to an alternative world of sports.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
