Arsenal's Japanese supporters were out in force in Nagoya on Sunday evening for an open training session at the Mizuho Rugby Stadium.

A crowd of fans waited patiently for the players to leave their hotel in the centre of the city and they were rewarded when Aaron Ramsey and others emerged to sign autographs.

There was even more excitement at the stadium as the first-team squad arrived with Arsène Wenger and his coaching staff and put on a show with a series of training drills.
