An involved source has revealed that Sapporo-based furniture and interior supplies retailer Nitori Holdings is in the process of forming a women's running team.  2011 Daegu World Championships marathoner Remi Nakazato, who quit the Daihatsu team in February last year, will feature prominently on the team, which will be based in Kanto and, with a small number of athletes, will focus on developing marathoners.  The new team's coaching staff will include former Sakura AC assistant coach Katsuhiko Takahashi and former Route Inn Hotels head coach Tsutomu Takahashi.
