While Japan Bandy Federation was founded in 2011, there has not been any full-sized bandy field in the country. So domestically only the variety rink bandy has been played. However, in the summer of 2017 an association for bandy was founded in Shintoku and it was announced that a full-sized field will open in the 2017-18 winter season. It became a reality in December 2017 and the first Japanese championship took place there in January 2018, with the home teams capturing the titles.
