Five-time UAAP Most Valuable Player Marck Espejo is taking his talents to Japan, following the official announcement and contract signing Sunday in Pasay.

Espejo will play for Oita Miyoshi Weisse Adler and the team will compete in the Japanese V1 League for the upcoming 2018-2019 season.

The V1 League is the premier tournament in Japan.

"It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. I really have to work harder talaga, double ko yung effort ko kasi yung level of competition sa Japan is different dito sa Philippines," Espejo said.

Espejo dominated the UAAP with Ateneo for five years, winning three straight championships. However, in his last playing year in Season 80, his Blue Eagles lost to rival NU in two games.

The high-leaping Espejo will wrap up the current PVL Reinforced conference for Cignal before leaving for Japan.

He will return next year in time for the new PVL season and the 2019 Southeast Asian Games which the Philippines will host.

Oita Miyoshi was established in 1996. Weisse Adler means "White Eagle."

The club played in the Philippines back in 2014, competing in the Asian Men's Club Championships.
