Haikyuu!! 2014, Sendai City Gymnasium, Miyagi, 2015
Had a transit stop in the late afternoon through Sendai station, which meant there was no time to do touristy things but still a good hour or two to kill, so Sendai City Gymnasium it was because reasons!!
The area around the gymnasium was rather quiet and deserted given that it’s a Friday afternoon, so I was kind of expecting it to be just as uneventful inside (not to mention it was kind of dark), but it turned out there was actually a tournament that day…!
Okay well… it’s not volleyball but the “Miyagi Prefecture High School Spring Championship Handball Tournament” (roughly translated). Still, I hung around and watched the games a bit… like with most high school tournaments, they also had cool banners, rah-rah teams and handmade plastic bottle noisemakers not unlike the atmosphere you get with sports anime. You can practically smell the salon pas of youth in the air. あァァァ。。青春！
