4 October 1980 in Hilversum
●Japan 13-15 The Netherlands○
Lost despite a 10-point lead
 
Japan lost the first match of the tour though it was close. A mistake can be fatal in a test match. Though, of course, the Netherlands are a strong team and not easily defeated, it was a shame to lose this match in the way Japan did. Japan was first on the scoreboard. Oikawa scored a penalty in the first half. Fujiwara scored a try to widen the margin. Soon after the Netherlands scored a penalty, Japan's Mori scored a try (Oikawa kicked a goal) in the 37th minute. In the second half, the Netherlands added a penalty, a try and a conversion in the 16th minute, 12-13, trailing Japan by 1 point. Then they came from behind in the 23rd minute with a penalty. Japan failed to score a penalty in the 29th and 36th minute. We missed a chance given by the opponent twice and failed to come from behind. It was predictable that we could not win the match.
