Japan men’s national handball team visited Friday the Pyramids, the Sphinx and the 6th of October War Panorama, before the 27th IHF Men’s World Championship, which Egypt will host from January 13 to 31.
During their stay in Cairo, the team was keen to visit the Pyramids, the Sphinx and the 6th of October War Panorama, while adhering to the precautionary measures and health safety controls prescribed by the International Handball Federation (IHF) for the members of the participating teams and those who are visiting archaeological sites and museums in Egypt.
This visit comes within the framework of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities’ participation in this tournament by presenting some tourism programs for the teams participating in the tournament and for the masses of fans who will come from abroad.
Japan’s senior handball national team arrived in Cairo, on January 3.
They played a friendly game against the hosts two days later, losing 29:34.
“Since we arrived here, everything has been great from reception at the airport to transportation to the hotel,” Japan’s coach Dagur Sigurðsson said. “Our players are in good health and we have just had our first training session. We are looking forward to a good tournament.”
