The event attracted nearly 100 Vietnamese golfers and Japanese guests.

With the participation of golfers from Vietnam who were on tours of Japan, the tournament is a signal that tourism between Vietnam and Japan has gradually recovered after more than two years of hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to President of VGAJ Phan Trung Hieu, after the COVID-19 pandemic, many activities of the overseas Vietnamese community in Japan have returned to normal, including the Momiji Open 2022, which is the biggest golf tournament ever organized by the association.

He expressed his hope that the event will contribute to promoting the golf movement among the Vietnamese community in Japan.

The VGAJ was established in 2019 with the aim of creating a healthy sports environment for overseas Vietnamese in Japan, and contributing to connecting and creating a stronger Vietnamese community in the country. As of April 2022, VGAJ had nearly 100 members./.
