The 23rd Scottish Highland Games in Japan

The 23rd Scottish Highland Games in Japan will be held on Sunday October 30th. This annual event was for 22 years held at Ueno University's Soka campus, in Saitama, Japan, but this year for the first time it will be held in Kaihin Makuhari in Chiba, Japan at the Kanda University for International Studies (KUIS) campus.

The Games run from 10:30am to 5pm and provide a unique opportunity for Japanese and foreigners alike to witness traditional Highland events, such as putting the stane and tossing the caber. Visitors will also be treated to Scottish piping and dancing displays and sample a range of Scottish food and drink. A 5-a-side football tournament, games for children and a tug-o-war competition complete what is likely to be, as always, a great day out.

For your students, Shane English School will once again be operating a stall on the day, entertaining children with English games and conducting level checks and conversation practice with adults. Everyone is welcome to come along. To find out more, including how to find the grounds and cost of entry, check out the website.
