Reference: Nutrition Seminar

Mitsui Fudosan Sports Academy for Tokyo 2020 events have been held from Nihonbashi, where Japan’s five major highways all started, to the Tokyo bayside Wangan area, and in elementary and junior high schools and LaLaport facilities in areas where Mitsui Fudosan is engaged in urban development. Looking ahead, the plan is to hold events in places throughout Japan, including retail facilities that Mitsui Fudosan operates such as Tokyo Midtown, LaLaport and MITSUI OUTLET PARK. By enabling direct contact with top-class athletes, the Academy will create connections with many people, starting with the children living in those districts, and will vitalize urban communities, thereby creating a legacy that will continue into the future.
