The next stop on our Japanese Rugby World Cup host city guide is Kumamoto on the southern island of Kyushu.


Famous for it’s 16th century castle, Kumamoto-jo, the bustling city radiates around this stunning landmark.

Jaybor explores the thriving city and tastes some of the local delicacies, before taking a helicopter ride around one of Japan’s largest active volcano, Mount Aso.

We also visit the 32k seater Kumamoto stadium which will play host to Wales, France, Tonga and Uruguay at the Rugby World Cup 2019.

Follow all of Jaybor’s adventures in Japan below.
