    The Japan Bowl Ontario 2023 was organized and successfully held by Huron University and The Japan Society on Saturday, March 18th, 2023. Read event report.

    The Japan Bowl® is a Japanese language and culture competition for high school students initiated and developed by The Japan-America Society of Washington DC in 1992. The Japan Bowl Ontario is not an exam. It is designed to demonstrate achievement of knowledge of Japanese culture, society, daily life, history, geography, and current events. For the students, it provides opportunity to challenge and enjoy their study. Our goal is to strengthen students’ interest in Japan and encourage them to continue their connection with Japan and deepen further understanding of Japan in their future. We aim the students to become leaders of the relationship with Japan.

    We welcomed 5 teams/14 students to participate as well as volunteers, staff, guests, and celebrity judges. All the participants challenged a wide range of questions through the Preliminary Round. The top 3 teams were invited to the Final Round and awarded with prizes. In addition, all participants will receive gift package donated by donors.
