Day 1: September 25th Arrive into Japan on your scheduled flight

Your tour starts in Kobe so there are a number of options for you with flights. You can fly into Osaka's Kansai Airport, Fukuoka, Tokyo, or Nagoya. You will be provided with a Japan Rail Pass to start on the first day you arrive so getting to Kobe will just be a bullet train ride away from any of these airports.

Which ever airport you land in, we will meet you on arrival and get you to your next destination hassle free.

Overnight in Kobe in advance of tomorrow's big game!
