Starting from 1st April 2016, Robert Walters Japan, will be the official sponsor for the Japanese National Rugby Union team, National Rugby Sevens team, and junior teams including the National Under Twenties Rugby Union team.

As a sponsor, Robert Walters Japan will continue to enhance the visibility of Japan national rugby union teams through efforts such as the use of logos in corporate advertisements, and promotions that feature the athletes and team mascot.
