Description:
Yokohama Athletic Club was a club of foreigners, predominantly Americans, in Yokohama Japan. In the late-19th century the athletic club was challenged by Ichiko, an elite Tokyo preparatory school. The matches were popular and won handily by the Japanese. The scores of the first four games spanning from the 1890s to the early 1900s between Japan’s Ichiko and the American Yokohama Athletic Club teams were: 29 – 4, 32 – 9, 22 – 6, and 14 – 12.
