In the event you have not heard, the Rugby World Cup is in Asia for the very first time.
Taking place the championship feels completely different to the predecessors and foreign and Japanese fans have been revelling in it.
There are many things to enjoy about a World Cup out a few that come as a welcome surprise and east, a few of which have been expected.
But after a little debate, the BBC Sport team in Japan have depended on exactly what they love.

You never quite understand what youre going to become in Japan. Its never boring; and enjoyable.
For example, the weather looks impossible to predict – any day could be a mix of torrential storms or sunshine – although at breakfast one needs to be ready to eat anything out of rare beef to donuts and cakes.
And because of this polite and allowed people, the Japanese love letting their hair down by getting stuck into great food and great drink – often in a karaoke booth.
BBC chief sports writer Tom Fordyce
Each World Cup needs a result in the group phases that keeps you viewing other games that you might suppose to be dead certs and shakes up the established order that messes.
In 2007, youd Fiji beating against Wales. In 2011, you and you had Tonga bothering France and Japans famous victory over South Africa, respectively.
What this World Cup is currently bringing is not just an but – possibly – a narrative that could kick on and on. If hosts Japan make it through to the knock-out stages for the first time in their history, it would be catastrophic for Scotland but notable for its tournament.
Other tier-two nations have fought, which should be an issue for World Rugby. To have the host nation in the previous eight would cover a variety of these broader issues up.

The excitement of the enthusiasts with this World Cup has been to.
Not merely do they buy the shirt of each team they move and watch (imagine hundreds of Japanese fans in full Namibia kit, backpack and ) they have also learnt the words to each national anthem and sing them with as much pride as ardent Argentines, yelling Frenchmen and women and multi-lingual South Africans.

Never have so few words in a language that was native elicited such a reaction.
I know how to mention about six items in Western covering a range of themes from hi to sorry and all the way to excuse me.
The answer to these efforts is pure pleasure from the recipient and they point at things and speak in Western after which you nod and smile to you.
You feel overseas all at the same time and energized. Loud English gets you here and that as it ought to be.
BBC Sport journalist Becky Grey
Culture has a great deal to teach us regarding respect. Trains are filled with signs reminding travellers to not use their telephones on-board and on match days you can find announcements in English telling fans to notcause any discomfort to their fellow passengers.
The value placed on respecting other people has interpreted onto the pitch . Teams have remained out on the field after fulltime to go round and bow when thanking somebody, as is the habit.
And there has been plenty of respect between groups behind the scenes. After thrashing them 63-0 champions New Zealand encouraged Canada into their room for a couple of beers.

It makes life in Japan effortless and really pleasant, although the Japanese love a guideline, and theres absolutely no doubt from them.
Everyone waits on streets with no-one, even in the crossings for the man around. You can find indications and nobody drives in.
Trains are on time, and if over a second you get a general apology. Sneakers have to be removed indoors, no shoes are permitted in gyms and caps should be worn by everyone in the pools.
BBC Radio 5 Live commentator Gareth Lewis
My favourite moment so far was being presented using a jar of marmite. We had intentionally chosen a location without a westerners and had surfaced there to watch the England v USA game.
After everyone had had a go at their English, the pub owner was so eager to own guests that he made a jar of marmite from beneath the counter and made us pose for photos with it.
And as for the rugby… I am not counting my chickens or making any predictions, but to watch Wales beat Australia at a World Cup for the first time in 32 years – at last – was fairly particular.
Im not silent when I watch games at home on the TV and tend to dwell every pass, kick and second of unbearable tension. To let that out from commentating on the match itself has been an unforgettable experience. I have just about abandoned a second level for up to if Wales go on and do something special.
