Toray Arrows is a men's volleyball team based in Mishima city, Shizuoka, Japan. They play in V.Premier League. The owner of the team is Toray Industries.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1947 in Ōtsu, Shiga Prefecture as Toyo Rayon Kurin Kai. They initially played nine-player volleyball. They moved to Mishima in 1964 and started to play six-player volleyball. They were described as the strongest team in the second-tier league but when they were promoted to the top-flight, they found themselves languishing in the wrong end of the table. However, since they returned to the Japan Volleyball League in the 1988-1989 season, they established themselves as a top-flight team. They won All Japan Championship in 2002 and the V.League in the 2004-05, 2008-09 season.[1]
