Matchday 36 Review – Montedio Yamagata 1-0 Tokyo Verdy (2016)

Matchday 36 Review – Montedio Yamagata 1-0 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy fell to a 1-0 defeat to Montedio Yamagata thanks to a goal on the 20th minute thanks to Ryosuke Matsuoka, to the game itself, the goal was because of silly Verdy defending – a cross into the Verdy box across the floor was kicked into the box by a Verdy player and another Verdy miscontrolled it and then Ryosuke got the ball and put it past Shibasaki to make it 1-0 to Yamagata, in the 36th minute, Yamagata had a good chance to make it 2-0 but the ball just went over the bar, just a minute later – Verdy probably had one of the best chance of the game when Vieira put a chance just over the bar, in the 2nd half Yamagata had a good chance but they put it wide – another chance for Yamagata fell just wide of the post, Verdy had a great chance from a Yoshiaki Takagi FK from just inside the D – but Yoshiaki’s FK hit the cross bar – so close to a goal, another great chance for Verdy from another Yoshiaki FK from the right hand side of the box and a Verdy player hit the post and it fell to Taira who skied the ball over the bar with the goal gaping so it stilled 1-0 to Yamagata – I don’t know how Taira actually missed it, Diego got himself sent off after picking up a second yellow card after what the ref though he dived to get a penalty but it finished 1-0 to Yamagata. 168 more words

7 Days In Tokyo: Day 6 - Pokemon Center Mega

This was our last full day in Tokyo. Tear! There are so many things we didn’t get a chance to see yet – the Tokyo Tower, the Tsukiji Fish Market, Ginza, and on and on – but instead of seeing brand new parts of town, we decided to return to the Akihabara area, one of our favorite places on the trip. 83 more words


Visit to Avex

We went to the Avex Artist Academy in Harajuku as our first field trip for our economics class. I have heard of Avex for several years now as Ayumi Hamasaki is managed by them (my favorite JPop star), so it was super cool to visit the school in person. 255 more words
