Bubble Soccer: Japan hosts game played in large inflatable ball

For those not too impressed with the soccer tournament going on in Brazil right now, Japan may have what you're looking for.

Tokyo hosted the All Japan Bubble Soccer Finals Saturday to determine who would be crowned the "Bubble King."

Originally created in Norway, the object of the game is the same as ordinary soccer.

You just have to wear a giant inflatable suit as you play.

It's near impossible to touch the ball with your hands, making the goalie's job that much harder, and you can't go for a steal without knocking over your opponent.

The winning team, who received nearly $700, said they were already ready to defend their "Bubble King" title in next year's competition.
