The media learned on Thursday that Tsuyoshi Nishioka will be participating in the Ishigaki Nippon Series victory parade scheduled for the 30th (he won't be in uniform though).  The plan right now is for Nishioka to arrive in Ishigaki on the 28 and continue his training there until the day of the parade.

Regarding the parade itself: it will begin at the Ishigaki city offices and end at the city meeting hall for a total distance of about 800 meters.  The procession is expected to last about 30 minutes; three open-roof cars will be used.  The town radio station will cover the event live.
