The 2012 Japan Sevens was the first edition of the tournament since 2001 and the seventh tournament of the 2011-12 IRB Sevens World Series. The host stadium was the Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium.

Australia won the title by defeating Samoa 28–26 in the final.[1]

FormatEdit

The teams were divided into pools of four teams, who played a round-robin within the pool. Points were awarded in each pool on a different schedule from most rugby tournaments—3 for a win, 2 for a draw, 1 for a loss. The six pool winners and the two top second-place finishers advanced to the Cup competition, the Plate competition was contested by the losing quarterfinalists from the Cup. The Bowl was contested by the four remaining second-place finishers and the top four third-place finishers while the Shield was contested by the remaining eight entrants.
