Japan Bowl Ontario is a Japanese language and culture competition for high school students in Ontario, co-hosted by Huron University College and the Japan Society. It is inspired and supported by the Japan Bowl®, initiated and developed by The Japan-America Society of Washington DC in 1992 and supported by Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado as a Honorary Patron.
Japan Bowl Ontario is designed to demonstrate achievement of knowledge of Japanese language, 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. Last year, we welcomed 8 schools, 9 teams, 26 students to participate and nearly 50 observers, guests and volunteers. The winning team was invited to the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affair's Kakehashi Project and visited Japan. We aim the students to become leaders of the relationship with Japan.
