The 2022 Japan Curling Championships (branded as the 39th Zen-Noh Japan Curling Championships) are currently being held from May 22 to 29 at the Tokoro Curling Club in Tokoro, Kitami, Hokkaido, Japan. Both the men’s and women’s events were played in a round robin format which qualified four teams for a page playoff.
Because of the 2022 Winter Olympics, a World Championship Trial was held in December 2021 between three teams on the men’s and women’s sides to determine Japan’s representatives for the 2022 World Men’s Curling Championship and 2022 World Women’s Curling Championship. Due to this, the Japan Curling Championships were pushed back later into the year. Instead of the winner qualifying for the upcoming World Championships like usual, the winners of the 2022 Japan Curling Championships will qualify as the Japanese representatives for the new Pan-Continental Curling Championships.
