London Japanese RFC

LJRFC’s badge, featuring two cherry blossoms

London Japanese RFC is a social but very active rugby club based in London. We enjoy a series of friendly matches and tournaments throughout the season, welcoming players of all backgrounds.

The team meets every Saturday, either for training or for matches. Training is held in Regent’s Park and matches are held at the team’s home ground at Wasps FC, Twyford Avenue Sports Ground.

The team was founded in 1979, making it one of the oldest Japanese Rugby teams outside of Japan (if not the oldest!). The team will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2019 with a special tour to Japan, the year it will host the Rugby World Cup!
