|This is the site for the national final of Japanese Puzzle Championship 2015. The contest concluded on 25 July 2015, so in the page, you can still submit your answers, of course, just for fun.|
Sorry about the fact that the website is almost completely in Japanese, and so the instruction and puzzles are. Because of this, only two international players entered this competition. Mr Kota Morinishi won the 2015 edition with full mark.
Contest was held in 13:00 - 15:30 (Local time; 05:00 - 07:30 in London Time) on 25 July 2015.
