Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup

The Japanese National Quidditch Team is the team that represents Japan for international Quidditch tournaments. Japan competed in the four-hundred and twenty-second Quidditch World Cup, in 1994 (riding Nimbus 2000's) and in the the 2014 Quidditch World Cup.[1]

It is possible that the team consists of students from Mahoutokoro wizarding school.

Team Special MoveEdit

Their Team Special Move is known as The Tsunami (20 points), and involves a lot of spinning, seemingly inspired by martial arts. First, Chaser Noriyuki Sato has the Quaffle flanked by the Japanese Beaters. Sato then does a spinning trick to avoid the opposing players, then passes to Chaser Ryotaro Tanaka, who passes to Yoshihiro Suzuki. Suzuki the punchs one of the beaters and throws It so Sato who kicks it through the middle hoop. Then Tanaka, who is waiting behind the hoop, kicks it to the left hoop where Suzuki kicks it into the hoop.

The Japanese Stadium is built in the shadow of an immense Sengoku-era castle, and is surrounded by pink cherry-blossom (sakura (桜)) trees, magically kept blooming year-round. It has several huge pagoda-style towers above the regular stands in which spectators can get a spectacular arial view. Instead of a normal qudditch pitch, the matches are held over an immense koi pond, which is bisected by an elegently carved wooden bridge. The goals themselves are made in the style of shrine gates (tori-i (鳥居)).


The team's emblem is a white circle with a green outer rim containing a red dragon with it's claw upon a Quaffle.
