Japan 2019 Guide for Wales Fans

It’s a very Kyushu-centric venue itinerary for Wales, with the last two pool matches then any potential quarterfinal all in Japan’s westernmost region:

v Georgia 23rd September, Toyota (Nagoya)

v Australia 29th September, Tokyo

v Fiji 9th October, Oita

v Uruguay 13th October, Kumamoto

QF 19/20 October, Oita

(click city names for venue guides)

So you could plan on spending those 12 days or so in Kyushu, flying there & back from Tokyo. However I still think the best approach is to make use of the JR Pass to see more of the country. For example you could get the 14-day pass and activate it a few days after the Georgia game to travel to Tokyo, and then from there to Oita via Kyoto, Hiroshima, and maybe Fukuoka. If you’re not going to the Georgia game you could use the 7-day pass just to go from Tokyo to Oita with stops in Kyoto & Hiroshima.

Or you could get a 21-day pass for all of the above plus some time left to check out other places in Kyushu like Nagasaki and Mt Aso.
