The Sauna Heating World Championship, which first began at Spa Hotel Peurunka in 2016, went global with a Japan Cup set to take place in Tokyo in April. “Pop’ Up Sauna Festival” was organized in the Japanese capital on 12th of April. This is the first time the event has been run outside Finland.

At the Sauna Heating World Championship, the competitors do not themselves enjoy a sauna. Instead, their challenge is to use their experience and skills to heat a specialist sauna tent created by the world’s largest sauna tent manufacturer Savotta up to a set temperature.

Having played an instrumental role in setting up the Sauna Heating World Championships, Markus Kallio from the Varjola farm was the official referee for the Sauna Heating Championship Japan Cup. The winner team “Takibi-kai” was awarded with Finnair flight tickets to Finland courtesy of Metos Inc.

The main World Championship event will be taking place at Spa Hotel Laukaa in Peurunka on 6thof July. The competition is open to all, with teams invited to sign up at saunamm.com.
