There are about 30 ICBunko throughout the UK. These are attended by about 550 children aged from around 2 to 9 years old. Each ICBunko is organised by the parents of the children. ICBA UK supports them with supplies of books, information and regular meetings. This is the list of all the ICBunko currently in the UK.

Nobinobi Swindon, Wiltshire Nobinobi

Next year (2019) will be our 10th anniversary.
Our bunko is supported and participated by both mums and dads. We introduce to children Japanese traditional games and books. Our children can loan books from our 550 books. Our bunko has a wide range of age groups from under one year old to 10 year olds. Children are divided into three groups, namely Tamago-gumi (from under one year), Hiyoko-gumi (those children who can hold a pencil) and Kotori-gumi (those children who can read hiragana). We try to be specific to the age group when organising games etc.
