JAPAN AMERICA SOCIETY OF WASHINGTON DC
30th National Japan Bowl Championship Rounds
The National Japan Bowl is America’s national Japanese-language competition for high school students. Each spring, the National Japan Bowl welcomes 200 of the country’s top high school Japanese language students to the nation’s capital each spring for the competition, testing students’ knowledge of Japan’s language, culture, and history. The top three teams go head-to-head to determine this year’s champions.
The Championship rounds will feature VIP guest appearances from Her Royal Highness Princess Takamado, Japan’s Ambassador to the United States Tomita Koji, and a few surprises. Viewers have a chance to win prizes by answering quiz questions between championship rounds.
Watch the Championship Rounds live on JASWDC’s YouTube channel from 6-9PM EST on Friday, April 22.
