Follow the rugby excitement both on and off the beaten track on this group tour.
You’ll start the adventure with a tour around Tokyo’s myriad of districts – seeing everything from a traditional Shinto shrine to a show at the glitzy Robot Restaurant – before taking a flight to Sapporo on Japan’s northernmost island, Hokkaido. As a city famous for its beer, it seems only right to gear up for the Australia v Fiji match in Sapporo with a delicious meal at the local brewery!
Following this first match, you’ll fly south to Nagoya and see Wales play Georgia in the nearby city of Toyota. A local guide will take you sightseeing in the area with visits to the Automobile Museum and the traditional village of Asuke.
Heading eastwards, you’ll take the train to the lively city of Osaka where you’ll take a traditional taiko drumming class and discover the city’s reputation for legendary cuisine and nightlife with a guided street food tour.
From foodie capital, Osaka, over to Japan’s cultural capital, Kyoto; famous for ancient temples, UNESCO sites and geisha performers. After a guided tour around this traditional city, you’ll take the shinkansen (bullet train) back to Tokyo.
You’ll have chance to discover more of this sprawling metropolis with a boat ride on the Sumida River, a visit to the city’s oldest temple and the views from the Tokyo Skytree ahead of the nail-biting Australia v Wales game.
