With two weeks exploring everything from enormous neon-lit cities to tiny traditional towns and spectacular natural beauty, you’ll have an amazing time in Japan regardless of the rugby score!
This group tour starts in the exciting city of Tokyo where a guide will give you an overview of the various districts, including a visit to the city’s oldest temple and the famous “Shibuya scramble” crossing.
Over the next few days you may well spot Mount Fuji (weather depending) at the strikingly beautiful areas of Hakone with its Open-Air Museum, and Izu Peninsula where you’ll visit the great crater of Mount Omuro. In amidst exploring Japan’s natural beauty, we’ll arrange transfers to take you to your first match – England v Argentina at Tokyo stadium.
The next part of your trip will showcase Japan’s cultural side. From the Izu Peninsula, you’ll take your first ride aboard the shinkansen (bullet train) to Kyoto. This city is home to well-preserved historic districts, and countless temples and UNESCO sites, but dinner with a trainee geisha promises to be the highlight here. Your cultural journey continues with a stay in the perfectly preserved town of Takayama during its famous autumn festival, and a visit to Matsumoto’s “Black Crow” castle.
Back on the rugby trail you’ll gear up for the tense England v France game with an exclusive InsideJapan event for fans in Tokyo, before a final relaxed day in the capital and a farewell dinner with your group.
