- My Favorites:
I began playing rugby when I was in junior high school. Since being selected to represent Japan in rugby sevens in my first year of university, I have played in the Rugby World Cup Sevens and won a gold medal at the Asian Games as a member of the Japanese team. At the Olympics, we had the significant achievement of defeating New Zealand (the All Blacks).
