So what better time to gather your fellow sports buff pals and head to the Land of The Rising Sun?
The Japan Rugby World Cup lasts six weeks, and will be hosted in cities across Japan including Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Sapporo. This means that you’ll easily be able to plan a great trip itinerary covering major cities in Japan whilst catching games at the same time. The six week long tournament starts on September 20, with the final being held in early November in Yokohama Stadium.
