All-Tohoku Tournament

Format: This is a two-stage tournament that produces two qualifiers for the Japanese Region tournament. In the first stage, leagues compete in Prefectural tournaments that determine the ten qualifiers for the All-Tohoku tournament. Three teams from the Fukushima prefecture tournament, three from the Miyagi prefecture tournament, and two from the Iwate prefecture tournament advance to the All-Tohoku tournament. In addition, Aomori and Yamagata prefectures, which each have only one chartered league, begin tournament play in the All-Tohoku tournament.

In the second stage, participants compete in a single-elimination tournament that determines the Tohoku champion and runner-up. Qualifiers were seeded into specific bracket positions for the All-Tohoku tournament based on their finish in prefectural tournament play. The bracket was arranged so that teams finishing higher in prefectual tournament competition could not meet until later rounds.

The two semifinal winners both qualify for the Japanese Region tournament, and then meet to determine first and second place.

All-Higashikanto Tournament

Format: This is a two-stage tournament. In the first stage, leagues compete in area tournaments that determine which teams qualify for the All-Higashikanto tournament. Eight teams from the Hitachi block, four from the Chiba City block, four from the Chiba block and two from the Tokiwa block advance to the All-Higashikanto tournament.

Mito Little League, the winner of April's Higashikanto Cup tournament, automatically qualifies for the All-Higashikanto tournament without participating in area tournament competition. Funibashi Little League, the runner-up in the Higashikanto Cup tournament, also qualified automatically for the All-Higashikanto finals, but elected to still compete in the area tournament. The two automatic qualifiers were placed in pre-determined slots on opposite sides of the All-Higashikanto tournament bracket. All other bracket positions were determined via a lottery.

The Chiba, Chiba City, and Tokiwa block tournaments used a round-robin format to determine which teams advance to the All-Higashikanto finals. The Hitachi block used a pod-based schedule in which four pod winners, three second-chance pod winners, and one third-chance pod winner advanced to the All-Higashikanto finals.

In the All-Higashikanto tournament's second stage, the twenty remaining teams play a single-elimination tournament that determines the Higashikanto champion.
