Come see our World Cup pages!

During the World Cup soccer tournament in Brazil, The Japan News will devote two full pages each day to providing extensive coverage of the event, with special focus on Japan’s national team, the Samurai Blue. See our column “World Cup Trivia” to learn interesting facts about the event and national teams, and visit “Program & Prospects” for prediction of the game of the day by the Japan News staff.

Game results will be promptly posted on a section of our website devoted to the tournament, with extra photos of the Samurai Blue you will not find in the paper.

Enjoy the games and brush up on your English using The Japan News as you go along!
