Sponsored by Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Inc

In February 2005 the Nikkei Newspaper sponsored the third World Student Oza in Tokyo. The match was held at the Nihon Kiin 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, but Korea got second this time.
