Tenpin Bowling in Japan

ボウリング

If a recent visit to a local bowling alley in Hoshigaoka in Nagoya is anything to go by, the sport is making a comeback after a slump in popularity in the late 1990s.

Bowling was all the rage in 1970s and 1980s Japan, with most towns of any size having at least one bowling alley, but seemed to suffer a slump in popularity in the "lost decade" of the 1990s.

All the equipment at Hoshigaoka Bowl was imported from the US and there are child-friendly devices to keep your kid's bowls in the lane. Food and drinks can also be bought.
