Mid Tour Itineraries

For many of you Rugby World Cup 2019 will be the catalyst for sightseeing throughout Japan. As we did at France 2007 and England 2015 with great results, we have rolled out our Mid Tour Options to coincide with a selection of Escorted Tours.

The idea of these options is to allow you to mix and match. It's flexible enough that you can be together in the same hotel with your friends in Tokyo or Fukuoka during the Tournament but in between matches you can choose to see different parts of Japan or venture to Beijing, China. You and your roommate may want to stay in Tokyo whereas your friends on the tour may want to visit Kyoto between the quarters & semi-finals. Then between the semi-finals and the final you may all want to visit Osaka together - the choice is yours!

This also means that if you have friends doing a shorter or longer tour you can take the same Mid Tour Options to catch up during the Tournament.

We are excited to offer six Mid Tour Options for you to choose from providing you the flexibility to tailor your tour to include the destinations that are most appealing to you.

Mid Tour Destinations

The touring destinations available to you are:
  • Venture to China’s capital city, Beijing where you can meander along part of the Great Wall of China as well as visit some of the city’s historic sites including Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.
  • Sightsee Tokyo by day as we visit Tokyo Tower, Asakusa and Meiji shrine, then once the sun goes down take to the neon lit streets of Shibuya, Shinjuku or Roppongi to get a taste of Tokyo’s legendary nightlife.
  • Pay homage to the victims of the world's first nuclear attack in Hiroshima when we visit The Peace Memorial Park, Peace Memorial Museum and the Atomic Bomb Dome. Take a ferry ride to Miyajima to see 'The Great Torii.' Then head to the Hakone region to see the magical Mt Fuji
  • Osaka is commonly referred to as the culinary capital of Japan with limitless amazing food to discover and eat. Stroll the streets in Dotonbori, a popular shopping and entertainment district thronged with an unbelievable number of restaurants and amusement facilities. Appreciate the history of one of Japans most famous landmarks on your tour of Osaka Castle before taking in the city from a different perspective, enjoying a 360-dergee view of Osaka 170m off the ground at the Umeda Sky Building.
  • Split your time between Nagano & Kanazawa. Visit the famous snow monkeys at Jigokudani Monkey Park in Nagano before we head to Kanazawa. Located on the Japan Sea coast we will explore the historic city of Kanazawa including the old geisha district of Higashi Chayagai, Kanazawa Castle and Kenroku-en.
  • Learn about Japanese history and culture in Kyoto by partaking in a traditional Tea Ceremony, Samurai and Kimono experience. Our sightseeing will include some of the city’s historic temples and shrines as we visit Kiyomizu-daera and Fushimi Inari-taisha.
