The Japan-Korea-China Junior Sports Exchange Meet

This Exchange Meet has been held since 1993 with high school athletes from Japan, Korea, and China competing in order to promote exchanges in sports with youth from neighboring countries and thereby deepen mutual understanding and enhance competitive abilities.

The meets are held in each country in succession. The first meet was held from August 25 to 30 in Fukushima Prefecture in Japan, the second in Jeju Do in Korea, and the third in Tangshan in China. Since then, the rotation has been continuing.

Japan-Korea Sports Exchange Program

Taking the joint hosting of the 2002 Soccer World Cup competition by Japan and Korea as an opportunity, sports exchanges between Japan and Korea began in 1997 through the efforts of the Japanese and Korean governments.

The purpose of the exchanges is to popularize and promote sports, and to enhance the competitiveness of athletes in both countries.

Currently, we conduct several sports exchange programs between Japan and Korea as follows:

Japan-Korea Youth Summer Sports Exchange Program
Japan-Korea Youth Winter Sports Exchange Program
Japan-Korea Sports Exchange Program (Adult)
Japan-Korea Regional Sports Exchange Promotion Program
