Fukuoka City’s Only All Season Ice Rink Suspends Operation

Operation of Papio, the only ice arena open all year round in Fukuoka City, will be suspended as of April 2021. The ice-sport facility in Hakata Ward plans to carry out maintenance on its old equipment in April, and it will remain closed for an indefinite period. The facility suffers deficits that amass some ¥2 billion and said it would be difficult to continue operating without other organizations’ support. Source: KBC / TNC
