The National Sports Festival is Japan’s largest annual multi-sports event. Every year a different prefectures (Ken) – one after the other – hosts and organizes all the sports competitions in cooperation with each sport’s national governing body.

The Japan Sports Association and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science, Sports and Technology are co-organizers of the events.

The Japan Bowling Congress (JBC) serves as organizer of the bowling competition which features Singles, Doubles and Team event in all four divisions: adult men and women (18 years and over) and juvenile boys and girls (15-17 years of age).

In each sport, points were awarded to the prefectures based on their players’ positions. The points from all sports were tabulated and the Emperor’s Cup was awarded to the prefecture which got the most overall points from all divisions while the Empress’ Cup was awarded to the prefecture with most points in the female division only.

Points for Emperor’s and Empress’ Cup in the bowling competition:
Singles: 1st place – 8 points, 2nd place – 7, … and 8th place – 1 point.
Doubles/Team: 1st place – 24 points, 2nd place – 21, … and 8th place – 3 points.

At the conclusion of the 2016 Festival, Tokyo received both trophies, the Emperor’s and the Empress’ Cup. It marks the fourth consecutive year that the Empress’ Cup went to Tokyo.
