The 2nd Saitama Token Ichi was held only one-minute walk from the Omiya Station in Omiya City, Saitama Prefecture. It was a 3-day event from Friday to Sunday, November 27th-29th. It was held in collaboration with the local Omiya sword dealer “Asahi Token.” Since the recent increase in the spread of the new corona-virus, I was worried about the number of visitors. Despite this, there were more visitors than I expected. We did our best to avoid spreading the corona-virus by implementing the wearing of masks and ensuring the ventilation was sufficient. November of this year, the biggest event, The Dai Token Ichi was canceled due to the situation with the corona-virus, so I think that sword enthusiasts were hoping for an exhibition and sales event. Many familiar customers as well as ladies and young people from both local and afar came to the event, so it was very busy.

Thanks to everyone’s efforts, the event was able to achieve more than the target.

The 3rd Saitama Token Ichi is scheduled for May of next year.
