Last year I hopped on a plane to Japan to do a recce ahead of the upcoming World Cup next year. What a fascinating country. Tokyo is a huge, dazzling metropolis which juxtaposes the old and the new with neon sky scrapers nestled alongside historic temples. I spent a week sampling the delights of many luxury hotels not to mention bars and restaurants, all in the name of research for the VU Japan Rugby Tour packages of course!
A short flight from Tokyo is Okinawa, a Japanese prefecture comprising more than 150 islands in the East China Sea between Taiwan and Japan's mainland. It's known for its tropical climate, beautiful beaches and coral reefs which offer amazing diving opportunities. It was the perfect spot to unwind after the bustling throngs of the capital.
After that I travelled back to the mainland and took a trip to Kyoto which is famous for its numerous classical Buddhist temples, as well as gardens, imperial palaces, Shinto shrines and traditional wooden houses. Here I sampled traditional Kaiseki dining, geisha entertainers and stayed in a Ryokan, a traditional Japanese guest house.
As a result of my fascinating visit to this diverse country, I have tailored an array of Japan 2019 itineraries to suit many a budget and we are well positioned to put entirely bespoke trips in place. We have access to hotels, ground transportation, exclusive dinners with Rugby Legends, excursions and Japanese/English speaking hosts & tour guides that will ensure a smooth and enjoyable trip.
Over the next few weeks I will be looking at the top tourist attractions and excursions available in each of the match stadium locations so watch this space for more info…
