KAYAC, the innovative company behind the tournament hosting and management platform Tonamel, has entered into a comprehensive agreement with Culture Convenience Club Company (CCC), the driving force behind TSUTAYA stores, to implement this advanced platform across its network in Japan. This partnership is set to transform the traditional trading card tournament scene, aligning with CCC’s vision of evolving TSUTAYA into a hub of community interaction and a beacon of the new-era experience-based bookstore.

Culture Convenience Club, adhering to its motto “Love is what we live for,” is dedicated to fostering local community bonds through TSUTAYA stores. The stores have been pivotal in promoting popular trading card games and hosting competitive tournaments. With ambitious plans to expand their trading card store network significantly by the end of March 2026, CCC is set on enhancing the customer experience and broadening their community engagement footprint.

The integration of Tonamel into TSUTAYA’s member stores is a game-changer, transitioning from traditional paper-based management to a sophisticated digital platform. This shift promises to streamline tournament operations, significantly reduce customer wait times, and elevate the efficiency of competitive gaming events.
