Junior Japan received a warm reception from students and teachers of Latter Day Saints College yesterday.

LDS College is the adopted school for the men from the Land of the Rising Sun during the World Rugby Pacific Challenge which ends on Monday at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

Team manager Gen Fukushima said the school visit was special for the boys after the tough game against Tonga A on Tuesday.

“This is a really good opportunity for our boys to enjoy themselves off the field,”he said. “We try to teach these young children few Japanese dancing exercises and rugby drills.”

School principal Michael Carthew said the team’s visit was special for them as they seldom get international teams visiting the school.

“We really appreciate it, it’s special for us and as you can see we don’t get a lot of international teams in school.

“It’s a very special moment for us, we are very delighted they have taken their time out of their busy schedule and come to visit our students.”

Carthew also acknowledged Fiji Rugby Union for introducing the Get Into Rugby programme in the school.

“We’ve girls and boys involved in rugby, FRU were wonderful last year in helping us get started with the TAG rugby, providing  resources.”
