The price will increase as the event gets closer.

  • Until April 30 – JPY 4000 (Approx. USD $35)
  • Until May 31 – JPY 7000 (Approx. USD $60)
  • Until June 30 – JPY 10000 (Approx. USD $85)

If you are submitting a yo-yo to the Mods Contest without visiting the contest venue, or competing only in SpinTop, you do not need to pay the Contestant Registration Fee. Please see the price examples below for more clarity.
