A giant of Japan’s bowling industry, Keijiro Nakano, died on May 16 after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He was 93.

Known throughout the industry as “Mr. Nakano,” his Starlanes chain of bowling centers was among the most successful in Japan, and his Eastern Sports Ltd. company was a leading distributor for many years.

Due to government restrictions related to the coronavirus, services will be private and limited to family members.

We’ll have much more on Mr. Nakano, who received BPAA’s Victor Lerner Memorial Award in 2000, in this week’s BJI Cyber Report and in the July issue of BCM.
