The Spring InterHigh, the national volleyball high schools championships or also known as Koushien of volleyball, is a tournament that take places during winter and is held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium. A few years ago the tournament was held at Yoyogi Gymnasium before moved to the current venue. It is a tournament for high school volleyball teams. The Spring Interhigh is considered one of the most prolific events of the high schools level volleyball tournaments along with Summer Interhigh tournaments. 


The Spring Interhigh itself is in classic tournament structure, a single-elimination tournament, also known as sudden death. It begins with first round, second round, third round, quarter-final, semi-finals and eventually the finals.

Before the tournament begins, there is a qualifying round that usually starts in November and qualifying rounds are held in every prefecture in Japan. Only 1 team can represent the prefecture and there are some prefectures that can be represented by 2 teams. For the Tokyo prefecture, because the tournament itself is held in Tokyo, they are allowed 3 team representatives.
