Scrumwhere only we know - Watch the rugby in Japan for less

2 months ago By Pitch Hero

Given up hope of watching rugby in Japan after seeing extortionate prices? Don’t put that suitcase away just yet.

With great value travel options from £2,080 **per person it is possible to support the Home Nations without breaking the bank.

Did you know that the most cost-effective way of travelling to the World Cup is to purchase your official match tickets separately and book the tour with InsideJapan Tours?
Packages including transport in Japan, accommodation, cultural experiences and exclusive rugby events have been tailored around the nail-biting Home Nations matches at a fraction of some of the prices in the current market - making your trip hassle-free (providing the matches go well, of course…). We will even tell you how to get your match tickets!
