Japan’s Sunwolves Super Rugby Defeat: A Dismal Reflection of Asian Rugby

In a lugubrious-looking stadium filled with only but a handful of devoted rugby enthusiasts, Japan’s Sunwolves played out their defeat against the previous year finalists, South Africa’s Lions. The team was plagued with low morale even before the match begun — just the day before, SANZAAR, the Southern Hemisphere rugby body announced a harrowing decision to axe the Sunwolves after their 2020 season.

Japanese Film Festival 2018 Brings The Best of Japanese Cinema in Singapore

One of the first things that would pop up in our minds once we hear “Japan” or “Japanese”, is either one of two: endless slices of Salmon sashimi, or cutesy anime girls with high-pitched voices that can almost destroy our eardrums.
