Japan team building Japanese team

For meetings, we provide customized seating arrangements for each team. The seating can be in the form of your organization’s logo, it can represent the theme of the event, or you can choose any arrangement that suits your needs. We also provide colored happi -- a traditional Japanese coat. The team colors help the members bond and more closely identify with one another.

Here’s a list of the Japanese team building activities Maikoya offers:

1. Japan themed jigsaw puzzles

We provide one puzzle per team with a Japan themed image on it. The teams compete to be the first to complete their puzzles. The team that can most efficiently organize its members into functional roles has the best chance of winning.

2. Ken-dama

The teams can show the skill and coordination of their individual members during the ken-dama (cup and ball) activity. After some brief instructions and a demonstration by the Maikoya staff, members from each team compete to be the first to successfully perform a basic ken-dama move.

3. Samurai treasure hunt

This activity takes place in Maikoya’s Samurai Museum. The team members work together in this scavenger hunt to decipher clues and find the necessary items to complete the course. The members discuss and gain inspiration from each other as their thoughts coalesce and the goal comes into focus.

4. Wagashi and confectionary contest

Everyone learns how to make wagashi (or nerikiri), which is a traditional Japanese confectionary usually served with green tea. After each person learns the basics of making and shaping these treats, teams are given dough in three colors. The goal is to shape the confections into scenes that tell a story. The team with the most creative design wins.
