The Japanese have a reputation for tidiness, and this shone through when proud Japanese rugby fans took the time to clean a Tokyo stadium after the Rugby World Cup’s opening clash against Russia.

Japan beat Russia by 30 points to 10, with wing Kataro Matsushima scoring a hat-trick, which had the home nation go crazy in the stands.

Matsushima, who was born to Japanese parents in South Africa, has been pegged as a star to keep a sharp eye on. The 24-year-old scored Japan’s first ever hat-trick, and was reported to have fans roaring with pride every time the ball went near him.

Japanese fans were also praised for cleaning stadiums during the 2018 soccer World Cup in Russia. The Japanese soccer team was also praised for leaving their dressing room tidy after losing the Asian Cup finals earlier this year.

The Japanese community not only displays undeniably good sportsmanship during games but they are also always proud and respectful, ensuring no litter is left behind when they leave the stadium, setting a stellar example for rugby fans everywhere.
