Road to Victory

[QF2 & 4 + SF1 & 2]



Day 1: Tokyo Arrival

Arrive into Tokyo's  Haneda or Narita Airport on your scheduled flight. You will be met on arrival and transferred to your hotel directly. Relax and unwind today. Get to know your local area where you will be based for 3 nights.


Meet our group in hotel lobby in the evening for a welcome dinner (optional / pay locally).


Remember, our clients will come from all over so you may be mixed with other avid rugby supporters from New Zealand, Ireland, Scotland, or South Africa. Nothing better than a bit of diversity to keep the banter alive!

Day 2: Tokyo City Tour & Quarter Final 2

Enjoy a buffet style breakfast at your hotel.

★★Tokyo City Tour★★

Including entrance fees & local guide

Match transfers arranged directly to & from your hotel.

★★Quarter Final 2 ★★

Tokyo Stadium @ 19:15 Kick Off

Join our Post-Match Party at a local izakaya (casual / local style dining) for an All-You-Can Eat & Drink for 2 hours!

Day 3 : Quarter Final & Post-Match Party

Today you will have the day off for some rest & recovery before another very exciting evening. Meet your match transfer at around 16:00 at your hotel.

★★Quarter Final 4 ★★

Tokyo Stadium 19:15 Kick Off

Whether you’re celebrating or commiserating, tonight you’ll have the chance to party like a local!

Day 4 & 5: Bullet Train to Kyoto

Today we will take the bullet train out of Tokyo for Kyoto. Your three nights in Kyoto will be filled with cultural and culinary surprises. An authentic tea ceremony at a local Gion tea house. A chance to meet and sit with a real Kyoto Geisha. Meet our local guide for a full day guided tour to see some of Kyoto's 17 breath taking Unesco world heritage sites; Nijo Castle, Kinkakuji Golden Temple, Arashiyama Bamboo Forest etc.

If you have time on your free day, why not take a day trip out to Nara, Japan's first capital where the Emperor first reigned and home to the worlds largest bronze statue and wooden buildings.

Day 6: Historical Hiroshima & Magical Miyajima

★★Optional Tour: Hiroshima and Miyajima Island★★

For those who wish to head west on the bullet train (2 hour journey), we will arrange a day trip to Hiroshima and the Unesco World Heritage Site of Miyajima Island. You can expect to visit the Peace Park, A-Bomb Dome, Miyajima Island Floating Shrine (Itsukushima Shrine) and savour the delights of the local ‘okonomiyaki’ (pancake) for lunch. (pay for lunch & entrance fees locally). Today’s day trip will return in the evening to your hotel in Kyoto or Osaka.

If you prefer to explore Kyoto some more, that’s your choice. Or, you can visit Osaka, Japan’s 2nd largest city.

Day 7: Mt Fuji Japanese Style

Before reaching Tokyo again, we will stop off for one night in a traditional Japanese ryokan. Onsen (hot spring baths), sleeping on a futon on tatami mats, kaiseki dinner, and original warm Japanese hospitality at its best awaits. This experience can only be found in Japan so when in Rome, we say, try it at least once during your stay!


Our local guide will also show you around the area. Lakes, cable car rides, mountain roads, magnificent views, and hopefully your chance to see the majestic Mt Fuji (weather permitting).

Day 8: Hakone to Tokyo

After breakfast we will make our way back to Tokyo for the two semi final games. Today you will have time for shopping and sightseeing inside and around Tokyo. Your tour leader will advise you on where to go or how to get there.
