Sponsored by Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Inc

In February 2004 the Nikkei Newspaper sponsored the second World Student Oza in Tokyo. The match was held at the Nihon Kiin's headquarters in Ichigaya. 16 students were invited to take part, both male and female. As well as Asian countries, Europe got to send three players and North and South American one player each. As expected, again the Chinese players dominated the event.
