  • i wonder if who will be the next possible setter for the japanese nt when the time comes that takeshita will retire...they need to have option as soon as possible i think...i really wanna see the new players of japan nt to play....i saw mari horikawa play before durring asian youth volleyball championships in manila last 2008....and she played so well...powerful spikes...i wonder why shiori murata her teammate before in asian youth was not selected...shiori murata is very powerful spiker then....

  • I like Takeshita, but her height kills her at the net. A total of 5 blocks in the World Championships and only touched 53 balls (5 blocks, 31 rebounds, 15 errors).


    In the massively long second set against Brazil in the semifinals, they just went outside on top of her to kill the ball.

    This is official Japanese squad from World Grand Prix.
    I'm very dissapointed becouse Megumi Kurihara and Kaori Inoue is out of the squad.
    If anyone knows why Megu and Kaori won't play in WGP??

    Megumi underwent a surgery in her left knee early this February and she is gonna focus on the rehabilitation...


    She officially announced her temporary resignation from Japan NT on June 17th...if she thinks it is okay to come back and the time might be next year.


    Inoue is also resting for injury after an operation.

    i may not be the tallest,
    the fastest, or the strongest,
    but at least i can do one thing better than anyone else,
    to be me...

  • ohhh my.... kaori inoue is playing great......why shes suddenly wont play...:(...i will miss megumi kurihara....i wonder why maiko sakashita is not anymore in the national team...she has been part of japan nt in the previous WGP around 2009

  • Yes!!! Megumi Kurihara return to national Japan team :woohoo:
    I hope that she will play in World Cup 2011
