Over a century since its inception in 1918, Waseda University's renowned rugby club has made a historic addition by forming its inaugural women's team. The introduction of the women's team, comprising 11 members and support staff, aligns with the university's effort to boost female participation in sports clubs, aiming to balance the gender ratio among its 2,527 members from the previous academic year, where women accounted for about 35% of the total. This move not only signifies a momentous step towards gender inclusivity in rugby but also embodies the club's commitment to nurturing talent and fostering a sports culture that values diversity.

During a press conference in Tokyo, team captain Kae Chigita articulated her aspirations to elevate the standing of women's rugby while honoring the legacy of the esteemed Waseda rugby club. The diverse backgrounds of the team members, ranging from seasoned players to newcomers like Miku Okimura, reflect a blend of experience and enthusiasm that adds vibrancy to the newly established women's team. Led by head coach Chisato Yokoo, a former member of Japan's sevens team, the team is gearing up for its inaugural rugby sevens game in May, donning the traditional red-and-black jerseys synonymous with the men's team. Coach Yokoo's vision for the team transcends the field, emphasizing a holistic approach that prioritizes both academic excellence and sporting achievements, with a bold ambition to steer the women's team towards becoming a dominant force in Japanese rugby.
