An unmarked package dropped through the letter box today, which oddly made me suspicious as I’d just watched the Manhunt: Unabomber series on Netflix. But, like a slave to society as the series opening script claimed we all are, I opened it happily enough, and was greeted, fortunately by the Japanese Way of the Rugby Fan…or Gambare!

This is a travel guide to Japan for the rugby fan who may be venturing off to Japan for the World Cup this year that I designed for the author Angus Turvill, and illustrated by Harry Venning.

It’s a great pocket-sized guide to Japanese customs, etiquette, transport, food, language and of course rugby game locations. For more information about the book and to buy a copy click here.

I even discovered how my name looks in Japanese! Arigato!
