Goldfish scooping contest in Japan catches global interest

The Japan News, August 26, 2020

YAMATOKORIYAMA, Nara -- The 25th National Championship of Goldfish Scooping was held on Aug. 18 in Yamatokoriyama, Nara Prefecture, one of the top goldfish-producing cities in Japan, boasting annual shipments of about 60 million.

Goldfish scooping, a popular feature at summer festivals, has become a competition. The event began in 1995, organized by the national goldfish scooping federation and the city government.

To keep up with globalization, the latest competition added an English subtitle, the “Goldfish Scooping World Championship,” and the contest is promoted with the phrase “The world champion will be decided here in Yamatokoriyama.” A video explaining the game’s rules was newly subtitled in English.
