Kita-Kanto answers some of your most probing concerns..............
KKFC (Kanto) is a group of English teachers living in Saitama Prefecture, Japan. Most worked or work for Shane English Schools, a British English conversation and language school chain around the world.
Kita-Kanto means "north" "gate" "east", which means, err...nothing. In feudal times however, there was a checkpoint between the cities of Kyoto and Edo (Tokyo). The area around Kyoto was called "gate west" (Kansai), and around Edo "gate east" (Kanto). Nowadays, the areas are much smaller, and thus we all live in the north of the modern Kanto region. Nearly. Therefore, we are Kita-Kanto.
It means a bunch of ex-pats who share a similar desire to run around in driving rain or hothouse humidity kicking a pig's bladder around can wear themselves out occasionally and then go to a bar afterwards and get hammered.
Kanto usually reserve pitches around Kita-Moto or Omiya in Saitama Prefecture.
Kanto play friendlies against anybody willing to play against them, as long as they aren't too skilful. E-mail now to book a game.

Kanto plays in yellow shirts with green trim, blue shorts and white socks. Knowledge of Samba music and holding hands before kick-off isn't obligatory.
