Inbee Park and Natsu Nagai were the only players to break 70 in the 1st round of the Fundokin Ladies. Park's 5-birdie 69 made her the co-leader with Nagai, 1 shot up on Mayu Hattori and Soo-Yun Kang, 2 shots up on Sun-Ju Ahn, Mika Miyazato, and Chie Arimura, and 3 shots up on Mi-Jeong Jeon, Meena Lee, Miki Saiki, and Miho Koga.
