Upcoming Events



Japan Curling Championship 2023″ will be held in Japan.


The Karuizawa Curling Vitalization Project Promotion Committee (Chairman: Tsugio Uchibori) will hold the “Japan Curling Championship 2023” as part of the 2022 Sports Agency-subsidized project (regional revitalization project centered on curling), which will feature both a curling TV game and a real curling experience and mini game. The event will be held as a part of a local revitalization project based on curling.

Curling is also a hot topic these days. “Minna no Curling”, a video game software approved by the Japanese Curling Association, is showing the attractiveness of curling in a new way.
This is the first time in Japan that a real and digital event is combined, and one of the objectives is to attract potential curling fans, as 60% of the Japanese population is said to be gamers.
This is a new type of ice sport, curling, which anyone from children to adults can enjoy immediately, and is not a new event.
I am.
