Photo Journal: Gearing up for the Rugby World Cup

(Mainichi/Motokazu Oyatsu)

Organizers of the Rugby World Cup Japan and others are dressed in staff uniforms at a press conference in Tokyo's Shinjuku Ward on March 4, 2019, some 200 days ahead of the event kicking off on Sept. 20. The basic tone of the uniforms, which were unveiled on that day, is light blue with accented yellow lines in an image of "unity, smiles and memories." The game's logos depicting Mount Fuji and the rising sun were printed on the chests of the uniforms, which are produced by sport apparel brand Canterbury of New Zealand Japan. Items such as polo shirts and jackets were displayed at the press conference. During the World Cup, about 13,000 volunteers and some 1,000 workers of the organizing committee will wear the uniforms.
