On July 3rd, 2016 (Sun), the 2016 Takata Smile Festival was held at the Kamiosabe grounds in Rikuzentakata.

In the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, the Kawasaki Frontale J-League soccer team sent mathematics teaching materials to children in Rikuzentakata. This became the catalyst for soccer classes and other regular activities, eventually leading to the signing of a friendship agreement called the “Takata Frontale Smile-ship” in September last year. This event was a part of that program.

On this day, Kawasaki Frontale players helped run a soccer class for local children. There was also a stall selling products and foods from both cities, which attracted long lines of people.

The main event was the “Smile Dream Match”, an exhibition game between Frontale and Vegalta Sendai, both of whom are in the J1 league. Almost 3,000 enthusiastic fans from inside and outside of the prefecture gathered to watch the pros face off against each other.
