Sports are big in Japan.
Women’s soccer is followed and celebrated in a much stronger way than many other countries.
You can see posters in the streets, read lots of news in the sports columns and everyone knows about them.
It helps that Japan’s team is one of the top in the world.
Japan’s national women’s team are called Nadeshiko Japan.
They were the first asian team to win the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2011.
They’re currently participating in the Women’s World Cup in Canada.
The semi-finals are tomorrow – Japan vs. England.
