You’ve got your tickets for Scotland’s four thrilling pool fixtures – now leave the rest of the arrangements to the Japan experts. In this adventurous 25 night trip we’ll ensure you get the best out of Japan’s culture, cuisine, and history as you travel between the host cities and our favourite destinations.
The cosmopolitan, modern harbour city of Yokohama, just southwest of Tokyo, will be your home at the beginning of your trip as you see Scotland take on Ireland. Swap skyscrapers for scenic countryside as you head into the Japan Alps to visit castles, mountain towns, and postcard-perfect Shirakawago, a UNESCO World Heritage village of triangular thatched farmhouses.
You’ll be based in the foodie city of Osaka for Scotland’s second fixture against Samoa which will be played in nearby Kobe – be sure to try out the world-famous beef while you’re in town. After taking in Hiroshima’s solemn history and the iconic floating shrine of Miyajima, you’ll travel on to Japan’s cultural epicentre: Kyoto, city of a thousand temples.
Next up you’ll be in Nagoya for several nights, a city known for its relaxed atmosphere and great food, and the Shinkansen bullet train will whisk you in comfort to the stadium in Shizuoka for the thrilling fixture against Russia.
Your trip will end back in Yokohama where our rugby fan event awaits, then help Scotland finish off their pool campaign with a bang as they take on the host nation Japan in Yokohama.
