T2 Diamond is a high-level tournament in which only top 16 players in the world ranking take part. It draws close attention because players can get more points necessary to take part in Olympic games, and global top players, including Chinese, join the competition. Kasumi Ishikawa of Japan, under contract with ZEN-NOH and 8th in the world ranking, also participates.
ZEN-NOH supports the tournament by providing Japanese foods, including omusubi (rice balls) and Inari-zushi (vinegared rice balls wrapped in fried bean curd) made from Japanese rice, in lounges for players, official guests and VIPs.
