Quidditch originally introduced to Japan by a few foolhardy students from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry that were blown off course after attempting to circumnavigate the globe on inadequate broomsticks. Japan has become one of the few Asian countries where Quidditch has achieved great popularity, growing especially over the last century.
Japan has a National Quidditch team that competed at the 1994 Quidditch World Cup, around this time, the team has a special move known as The Tsunami, which involves a lot of spinning and has a bit of a Karate theme. The team, with a different roster, also competed in the 2014 Quidditch World Cup, beating Poland and Nigeria, but lost to Bulgaria in the Semi-finals. They ultimately defeated the United States winning third place overall.
Vernon Dursley once made a joke about Japanese golfers in an attempt to impress a possible buyer and his wife for his drill company named Mr Mason. He got very upset when his nephew Harry Potter and the house-elf Dobby interrupted it by making too much noise upstairs.
