Tokyo Rugby Sevens 2013

Right: Japanese fans (plus one Kiwi).

Sixteen Teams arrived in Tokyo to compete in round seven of the IRB Sevens Rugby World Series. South Africa won 23 - 19 in the final against New Zealand after overcoming a 12 point deficit at half time.

Sevens Rugby is a festival occasion though, so for the fans the results take a back seat to having a good time.

The Tokyo event is only in its second year so still gaining momentum but should soon boast a similar atmosphere to the Hong Kong and Wellington legs of the World Sevens Series. If you do decide to visit, remember to bring plenty of warm clothing. Tokyo can still be bitterly cold at this time of year.
