Japan Rugby: the Pacific's secret strength
Although rugby has been played in Japan since 1866, the national Japan Rugby team wasn't officially formed until 1932. The team promptly beat the visiting Canadian side, demonstrating an unprecedented strength and prowess and setting the tone for the years to come. Some of the finest moments for Japan Rugby have come in the 21st century, with historic wins against Wales (23-8) in 2013, South Africa (34-32) in 2015 and Italy (34-17) in 2018. In 2014, the Japan Rugby team won ten consecutive games, making a new record for a Tier 2 team and rising through the world rankings to take a place among the top ten. In 2016, they were ranked ninth in the world. Not content with regular wins against some of the greatest rugby playing nations in the world, Japan Rugby has fended off tough competition like Fiji Rugby, Tonga Rugby Union and Samoa Rugby Union to win the Rugby Championship in Asia multiple times and make a name for themselves as the strongest rugby nation in the Pacific region.

The Brave Blossoms of Japan Rugby
The Japan Rugby emblem of a 'sakura' (Japanese cherry blossom) is something of an anomaly, belying the incredible strength and stamina with which the team meets every challenge. Because of this, they are fondly nicknamed the 'Brave Blossoms'. Japan Rugby has counted numerous world-class players among its ranks, several of whom have gone on to play rugby in Tier 1 nations or set new world records, like Daisuke Ohata, who in 2006 became the world record holder for tries scored in test matches. And the quality doesn't stop on the pitch: after Jean-Pierre élissalde became the first foreign Japan Rugby coach in 2005, the team went from strength to strength under the leadership of New Zealand's John Kirwan and former Australia coach Eddie Jones. With an exciting future ahead of them, the Brave Blossoms will guarantee you a match to remember.
