Gregor Townsend's squad landed in Nagasaki, where they will be based ahead of the tournament, and were greeted by a large sign in Japanese and English reading: "Welcome to Nagasaki, Scottish Rugby."
Many of those who had turned up to welcome the Scots to the Land of the Rising Sun had small flags to wave while some had banners.
Veteran scrum-half Greig Laidlaw had time to pose for pictures with fans while flowers were presented to members of the team before the players posed for pictures behind the welcome banner.
A local journalist even donned a scrum cap as he asked questions of Townsend and captain Stuart McInally in the airport.
