The All Blacks of New Zealand are the most popular players of the Rugby World Cup tournament in Japan. They are good players but more than being that they are well-mannered guests that know how to say thanks to their hosts.
How Kiwis won over the hearts of Japan?
Audiences in Japan and rugby fans all over the world are appreciating the respectful displays of Kiwis. Also, the fans are talking about the impressive baggage handling skills of All Blacks. Also, the New Zealand Says 39 campaign received big applause for Kiwis. Japanese people responded very positively to the respectful manners of the All Blacks. They performed haka to impress Kiwis gathered at training sessions to meet All Blacks stars.
Why Kiwis bowed before Japanese?
It is learnt that the All Blacks took training in Japanese culture much before their arrival for the Rugby World Cup in Japan. And they displayed their knowledge of Japanese culture and willingness to respect the hosts in their first pool match against South Africa on September 21. The All Blacks lined up and bowed to the crowd. This gesture made them popular in Japan.
The All Blacks again displayed their knowledge of Japanese culture by bowing before the crowd after winning their quarterfinal match against Ireland by 46 – 14 on Sunday night. They said thanks by bowing before the crowd and proved that it had become the culture of the Kiwis to say thanks to their hosts.
Also, the Kiwis rugby team shared a video of their efforts on social media with a caption “Arigato Tokyo”.
