The All Blacks were welcomed in style to their Rugby World Cup fan day in Kashiwa, with a group of children performing a terrific version of the team's haka, Kapa o Pango.

The clearly well-rehearsed haka was greeted with applause and prompted Richie Mo'unga to thank and congratulate the children in Japanese at the event in Kashiwa-no-ha Park Stadium.

A seperate group of children also performed the New Zealand national anthem.
