Disc-Village has two departments; one is agriculture and the other is flying disc. Through growing crops and the enjoyment of playing flying discs, we appreciate the connection between nature, health and life. We are trying to pursue the dream of a sustainable society, and hope to inspire others with this message.
Toka, the founder of Disc-Village has played ultimate, disc golf and many other flying disc games since 1990. He won the Japan Ultimate Championship in his youth and is very passionate about the flying disc sport. He has been a member of the Japan national team several times. The World ultimate championship in 2020 is his new challenge as a leader for the Japan grand master team.
He has also established the Tohoku League and has contributed to organize new teams all around the Tohoku region. Toka is trying to make the Tohoku League a relaxed environment with music played around the fields just like many tournaments overseas, and he himself plays the ukulele between the games.
Toka is a farmer growing apples and rice (partly organic) with his family. He is trying to encourage all the flying disc players to eat healthily and keep playing the sport they love for life!
Disc-Village has its own ultimate team. It consists of Toka's three children, people in his local area and others who wish to play the sport with Toka. They play ultimate for tournaments around the country and disc golf all year around.
The team Disc-Village welcomes other teams -mainly those of universities, but sometimes the juniors as well- to their home field over a weekend so they can play together. Furthermore, it holds some ultimate events such as "Azalea Games" and "Tochigi Leagues". Disc Village can provide the players with home made lunch; often soup, curry and rice, and rice balls when requested.
For the disc golf event called "Aizu Open" and many ultimate events run by Club Jr. inc(※), Disc-Village donates with its rice, apples, apple juice and jam as prizes for the players.
Disc Village's goal is to connect agriculture and sport; encouraging athletes to be conscious of what they eat, be in good health, and stay active for many years to come.
