Drum Corps Japan is the administrating organization for Drum and Bugle Corps activity in Japan. Most DCJ (Drum Corps Japan) competitions are held indoors on a floor with far different markings from those used in DCI, DCA, and most western drum corps competitions. The main exception to this is the Tokyo Open which is held outdoors, in a Baseball stadium.

Competition Scoring[edit]

Competition scoring in the DCJ circuit works much like scoring in almost every other Drum Corps association around the globe. Scores are given in the categories of Effect, Music, and Visual.

Effect scores are broken down in several ways. Musical Effect and Visual Effect are scored separately, each with a repertoire and show score, added together to get a total Musical Effect and Visual Effect score. The sum of these two total scores is the corps' overall Effect Score.

Music scores are broken up between Brass and Percussion. The total scores in each of these two categories are added together for a corps' overall Music score.

Visual scores are broken up between a colorguard score and a performance score. The totals in these two categories are likewise added together for a corps' overall visual score.

Effect, Music, and Visual scores are added together, penalties are then applied before noting a corps' final score.
