Combine two of England’s most exciting rugby matches with a guided journey around Japan.
Your trip will kick off amidst the skyscrapers of Tokyo for the lively England v Argentina match, before travelling across the main island of Honshu to some of the country’s most serene areas. Japan’s trains, including the famous shinkansen (bullet train), make getting to the laidback seaside city of Kamakura, Kanazawa’s famous gardens and the rolling mountains in Karuizawa a breeze.
You’ll experience the Japan of days gone by in Kanazawa’s samurai district, Shirakawago’s picture perfect thatched village, and Takayama’s autumn festival processions. It’s not all sightseeing though; with hands on wagashi confectionary and soba making classes, you’ll have Japanese dinner parties long after you return home.
After the excitement of the England v France game in Yokohama (just outside Tokyo) you’ll relax with a stroll around Hamarikyu gardens, a visit to Senso-Ji, the city’s oldest temple and a ferry trip on the Sumida river.
With a tour leader throughout your trip, and expert local guides along the way, you won’t miss a thing between the matches.
