Gunma Prefecture Pub Quiz

Posted by Tom Baker (Chiba, 1989-91)

As many in the JET community know, there is a thriving English-language pub quiz scene in Tokyo. Now a couple of my friends are trying to spread the excitement to Gunma Prefecture, too.

The first of what will hopefully be series of Takasaki Pub Quizzes will kick off at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13, at a bar called Pitch, a five-minute walk from Takasaki Station.

JET alum Tom Baker, a “Jeopardy!” champion and regular participant in the Tokyo pub quiz scene, gave a talk at the most recent Japan Writers Conference about “How to Write Pub Quiz.”
You can watch his presentation below, and find more JWC presentations — including several by former JETs — at the Japan Writers Conference YouTube Channel.
Also, if you would like to give your own presentation at the 2022 Japan Writers Conference this October, you can submit a proposal here. The deadline is June 1.
