The first weekend of June was the last set of baseball games for the 6 varsity in Tokyo. Of course, I had to attend this big match between Waseda and Keio since the rivalry between these 2 universities are so intense.
We were told not to stay overnight at the stadium but to arrive at 830am and move into the stadium after 11am but the game starts at 1pm. I guess this is for the hardcor fans. I arrived at 12pm after my Saturday class and had to settle for the second section of the seats.
The different props used for cheerleading. The cheerleading pack is 500JPY a bag, included inside is a towel which is used to twirl it in the air and a hard cardboard paper with folded lines that can be used as a fan or clapping prop. The thing that surprised me a little is that the absence of physical intimacy in Japanese society but all the students/audience would lock their arms to cheer whenever Waseda scores a point.
