  • Children and Olympian to send an inspirational message to the world from the National Stadium


    The month of May brings the curtain down on 56 years of history at the National Stadium, the sanctum of Japanese sport.
    A ceremony will be organised on Sunday 25 May to send a message to the world ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2019 and the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
    Olympic champion Koji Murofushi and thousands of children will team up on the field to form a message before the National Stadium closes for reconstruction.
