With less than a year to go until the Rugby World Cup 2019, we sent RugbyPass’ Jaybor Staunton to Japan to explore the host cities and find out what fans can look forward to in 2019.
Over the course of a packed 10 days, Jaybor travels from tip to toe of Japan by plane, train, taxi, Mario Kart, helicopter and bicycle.
As well as visiting the host cities & stadiums, Jaybor discovers just how much Japan has to offer in terms of amazing food & drink, stunning landscapes, an incredibly welcoming population, karaoke and of course a passion for rugby.
Part 1 sees Jaybor travel from the northern city of Sapporo through Kamaishi, Tokyo, Shizuoka and onto Toyota. Part 2 will see Jaybor continue his journey all the way to the southern island of Kyushu.
We hope you enjoy the adventure.
