A Richly Diverse Team Flies the Flag for Japan

Sep 04, 2019

The members of the Japanese national rugby team hail from all corners of the world. Each has his own reason for playing under the Rising Sun flag, but one thing they all have in common is their aptitude for the Japanese style of game. The team’s large cohort of foreign-born players reflects the growing diversity of modern-day Japan.

“Japan needs to forge its future together with foreigners from now on. I think the national rugby team can make a good model for that. We can communicate a positive message given our experience.” - Michael Leitch
