Tohoku League Division 1
Grulla Morioka and NEC Tokin are already confirmed as the teams who will proceed to the Regional League Championship Winners' Play-off tournament from Division 1 of the Tohoku League. Champions Grulla have won all twelve of their games so far this season, while runners up NEC are able to take advantage of the allocation of one extra place in the Play-offs on account of last year's dramatic success by TDK.

There is little to choose between the mid-ranking teams in this league, with Fukushima's FC Primeiro the best of the rest. Meanwhile at the bottom of the table, it's Nippon Steel Kamaishi who are most under threat of the drop but Morioka Zebra - currently celebrating their fiftieth anniversary - who are also in danger. The two teams are in action against each other this coming weekend in what could turn out to be a relegation decider.
