HOMEEnglishCampus LifeCampus CalendarSports Festival: Kakuyo Festival

The Kakuyo Festival is an annual event in which competitions are held between athletic groups from both Tsuru University and Takasaki City University of Economics.

The “Kakuyo” Festival was named using the Chinese character for “crane,” commonly read as tsuru (similar to the first part of Tsuru University’s name), and the Chinese character for “hawk,” commonly read as taka (similar to the first part of Takasaki City’s name), which when placed together is read as kakuyo (lit. “crane and hawk”). It is held at the end of June every year, bringing together the fruits of athletes’ training from both universities, as well as the deepening the universities’ relations with one another at the same time.
