Japan rugby travel

First played in the mid-19th century, Japan has had a long love affair with rugby. In fact, it was embraced with such enthusiasm that by the 1987 World Cup, Japan had more rugby clubs than any other country in the world! With unique culture and striking landscapes, as well as a thriving sports scene and world-class venues, Japan belongs at the top of every rugby fan's bucket list.

  • Future Japan rugby events - Rugby in 2019!

    Japan's 2015 World Cup experience reads like the book of Guinness World Records. 

    At the start of the tournament, Japan's Brave Blossoms were the only team in the RWC to have conceded more than 1,000 points, but to everyone's surprise (and 66-1 odds) they put an end to the longest losing streak (24 years) in RWC history by defeating South Africa. Only ever defeated by three adversaries - the All Blacks, the Wallabies, and England - this was the first time in two decades that South Africa had lost an opener.  
    In one final twist, Japan went on to leave the tournament despite only losing one pool stage match - another first in World Cup history! 

    Along with nail-biting rugby matches, fans will experience the unique culture and beauty of Japan - one of the most fascinating and friendly countries in the world.
