General Info

Welcome to the VRC Japan Cup 2014 hosted by Shinagawa Tech Showcase!

This robot competition serves as an international platform for students to engage in communication with their peers from different countries, exchanging information on technology, ideas, and strategies for the competition.

This competition is likely the world's first-ever VRC rookie tournament. There is only one field. Since the global tournament qualifiers have concluded, please relax and enjoy a meaningful time. Moving forward, we plan to hold the VRC Japan Cup for rookies every year at this time.

It is part of the Shinagawa Tech Showcase, where global corporations and startups showcase their exhibition booths, offering a three-day event where attendees can experience cutting-edge technologies in robotics, image analysis, VR, AR, and more. Please note that the robot competition takes place on the 25th, while the exhibition starts from the 29th, with varying dates for each event.

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy


The venue will be outdoors. In the case of inclement weather, the event will be moved indoors. If transportation is disrupted due to weather conditions, there is a possibility of canceling the event. In case of an emergency, the current situation will be posted on the homepage. Additionally, we will contact the contact information of the teams registered on, so please ensure that your team's contact information is up to date.



Refund and Payment Policies


If the Event Partner cancels the event: Refunds will be made at the discretion of the Event Partner and only in the case of an emergency.

If a team completes registration for the event and later chooses to withdraw or not attend: Regardless of the circumstances, if a team wishes to cancel their participation and request a refund, they must do so by 30 days prior to each event before the Event Partner cancels. No refunds will be issued for non-participation beyond the 30-day deadline. If a refund is approved, it will be processed within one month from the date of the refund request. Please note that the refund amount will not be the full payment, as it will be adjusted for payment system fees, schedule change fees, differences in currency exchange rates if applicable, and any bank transfer fees incurred.


イベント主催者がイベントを中止した場合: 返金はイベント主催者の判断により行われ、緊急事態がある場合のみ行われます。

イベントへの参加登録を完了後、参加を取り消すか参加しない場合: いかなる状況でも、主催者側がイベントを中止する前に参加を取り消し、返金を希望するチームは、各イベントの30日前までに申請する必要があります。 30日を過ぎてからの不参加の場合は返金はされません。 返金を承認した場合、返金は申請日から1か月以内に処理します。また返金は全額ではなく、決済のシステム使用料、スケジュールの変更手数料、為替が影響する場合の差額、あるいは振り込み手数料など、一部返金されない金額をが差し引いて返金します。

Judging Format


In this competition, since there is no opportunity to qualify for the World Championship, there will be no awards judged by the judges such as Excellence Award or Design Award. Therefore, there will be no judge interviews or evaluations of Engineering Notebooks. Instead, each team will be given limited time to maximize their participation in teamwork challenges and individual information exchanges.

Payment Methods


YSE, for events held within Japan, collects participation fees using a payment method chosen independently by YSE, rather than utilizing the robotevents payment system.
Previously, teams were required to make cash payments on the day of the competition, but due to security concerns associated with handling cash at the competition venue and the inconvenience of teams carrying cash, we have reevaluated the payment process.

Starting this season, you can make your participation fee payment in advance using a credit card. Please copy and paste the following URL to access the payment link.
The entry fee is ¥12,000 per team.

Furthermore, we have implemented the system of Metaps Payment Co., Ltd. However, it currently does not support multiple languages. To assist you, we have prepared an English user manual. You can download the user manual by selecting "Documents" from this content block and then choosing the PDF titled "Payment Methods" at the bottom.

If you encounter difficulties with credit card payments, please don't hesitate to contact the event organizers.

We appreciate your cooperation.




今シーズンから、クレジットカードで、事前に参加費をお支払いいただきます。 支払い先のリンクは、上記のURLをコピー・アンド・ペーストしてご利用ください。

また、株式会社メタップスペイメントのシステムを導入していますが、まだ多言語に対応していないため、英語のユーザーマニュアルを用意しました。ユーザーマニュアルは、このコンテントブロックから「Documents」を選択し、「Payment Methods」というpdfをダウンロードしてお使いください。















This user manual is a translation (English only) of the payment system used exclusively by YSE.
