TAP JAPAN OPEN 2022 CANCELLED
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 .
2. Due to Russia’s 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 .
3. 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 don’t have enough time to prepare for the tournament management .
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 understanding .
