The Nitori Ladies Golf Tournament, was held at Otaru Country Club (6,695 yards/par 72) in Hokkaido.

The final round started but was suspended at 10:26 due to approaching thunderclouds. The weather was not expected to recover after that, so the event was called off at 13:00. Thereafter, a playoff was held on the par-3 17th hole between Erika Kikuchi, Jiyai Shin (Korea), and Akie Iwai, who were tied for the lead at 9-under at the end of the third day. Erika Kikuchi won on the first hole of the playoff. This was her sixth win on the tour, following last year's win in her home prefecture of Hokkaido.

The following players were ranked as of the previous day: Yuri Yoshida, Momoko Ueda, SHI Yuting (China), Kotoko Uchida, and Fumika Kawagishi tied for 4th at 8-under; Minami Hiruta, Erika Hara, Miyu Sato, and Rio Takeda tied for 9th at 7-under; and Mone Inami, aimed for her third consecutive victory, tied for 16th at 5-under.

Kikuchi had lost all four previous playoffs and was unable to win. However, she commented on the par putt that made her victory: "Only on that par putt, my hand moved firmly. I don't know what happened the moment it went into the cup. It was so easy, and I don't know if it was the right thing to do. It was a very strange feeling."
