So you didn’t qualify for the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating in Fukuoka? No worries! Head to Fukuoka’s year-round skating rink Papio Ice Arena to practice and have fun on the ice. Children aged between four years and JHS can take beginner and figure skating classes. Ice hockey classes too. Adults are offered one-month beginner skating courses too.
