South Korean professional baseball team LG Twins has canceled its annual fall training in western Japan amid an escalating diplomatic row between the two countries, local Japanese officials said Tuesday.

Since 2013, the team has held a month-long training camp at the Kochi Athletic Recreation Park in the city of Kochi from around November every year, but it told the Kochi Visitors and Convention Association in August that it would call off the upcoming round.
