TAP JAPAN OPEN 2022 has been cancelled
We would like to inform you officially that TAP JAPAN OPEN 2022 has been cancelled
( not postponed ) .
The reason for the decision to cancel as follows ,
- Currently , the Japanese government is restricting newly entry of foreign nationals . You
cannot enter Japan for purposes other than commercial and working purposes . It has not
been decided when the restriction will be lifted .
- Due to Russiaʼs military attack on Ukraine , air routes are restricted . Especially in the case
of traveling from Europe to Japan , it takes a lot of cost and time because it has to be
detoured considerably .
- Even if the situation of 1 and 2 improves after March 20, there is not enough time for foreign
players to prepare for travel and we also donʼt have enough time to prepare for the tournament
The next TAPN JAPAN OPEN is scheduled to be held in May 2025 .
The health and safety of you all is of utmost importance . We appreciate your patience and
