- A comical video has gone viral involving the Canadian rugby team
- The players decided to dress in traditional Japanese robes as they decided to embrace the local culture
- Japanese citizens adored the attempt, but couldn’t stop laughing at the actions of one particular player
The Rugby World Cup is proving to be one to remember with exciting new sporting grounds, breathtaking scenery and already a few entertaining matches.
This is the first time that the event is being hosted by Japan and the visiting nations are truly embracing Japanese culture.
The Japanese people are playing their part too by providing a warm welcome for those visiting their shores.
The Canadian team may be more remembered by South Africans for the infamous brawl that took place in 1995 in which James Dalton was sent off, but their players are loving their time in Japan.
In a recent video, the players were seen in traditional Japanese robes and slippers.
Fans were on hand to give them a warm welcome, but couldn't contain their laughter as one of the players' shoes broke as he exited the team bus.
The comical video was shared via Twitter on Monday and went viral.
平凡な会社員 (@Ordinary_Man0) commented, "So cool they are for yukata to suit very much. We Japanese are glad they to enjoy our cultures."
Marilyn (@jpnlvnpn) added, "We’re so happy to see them to enjoy Japan."
K. P. Nuts (@kpnunns) said, "Getting stuck in, old skool touring values, guys having fun and in good jest with local hosts, thanks."
