About this Tour

Our 11 Day Trails of Japan Tour takes in Australia’s final two pool matches as well as three other block busting encounters. After two matches in the Kyushu region we will make our way to Hiroshima, a city decimated after the first atomic bomb was dropped on August 6th 1945. Here we will visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Atomic Bomb Dome as well as a ferry trip to the island of Miyajima and visit ‘The Great Torii.’ We will next make our way to Hakone where we will take a day tour to see the iconic Mt Fuji. The tour then finishes with a bang as we watch Australia take on Georgia, England clash with France and then tournament hosts Japan battle Scotland.
