‘Rugby Trail by Rail’ [First Two Pool Matches Ireland]

Japan 2019 ‘Rugby Trail by Rail’ has been designed for the serious Ireland Rugby fan who enjoys an independent travel style approach to getting around. Soak up the incredible live match atmosphere  in front of Ireland versus Scotland at Yokohama Stadium (Japan’s largest stadium) on September 22, 2019. Watch Ireland play the host nation, Japan, at Shizuoka Stadium one week later, in what promises to be one of the most anticipated games of the tournament.

In between each game, you will travel through this land of colourful encounters, ancient treasures, rural villages, and unassuming back streets, in comfort and style on the super efficient bullet trains. Forget the hassle of trying to figure out your way to and from stadiums. Our friendly drivers and assistants will meet you at your hotel, dropping you straight to each stadium on time. This plan will also ensure you celebrate with the locals, like the locals, at post-match ‘All You Can Eat & Drink’ izakaya’s nearby.
