Rugby World Cup Japan 2019: follow your team by ferry

Planning on travelling to the Rugby World cup this year? As the first ever world cup to be held in Asia, there is no doubt that this is going to be a tournament to remember, and no one will want to miss out! Here at Direct Ferries, we can help you make your journey throughout Japan as easy and hassle-free as possible, especially if you are planning on attending more than one game!

There are matches being held on three of the four main islands that make up Japan, and there are many different ferry companies operating between each island. We can help you find the best ferry crossings to get you from one game to the next. Throughout the tournament 12 different cities will be hosting the many different teams, so whichever team you support, following your team will give you a great opportunity to see a lot of Japan at the same time.

There are a wide variety of ferry companies that operate throughout Japan, and many of the stadiums where games will take place are within easy access of the ferry ports. Whether you are attending games in the Sapporo Dome in Hokkaido, or in in the Fukuoka Hakatanomori Stadium, or going to the final match at the International Stadium Yokohama, there will be a ferry available to help connect you to the many different ports in Japan.

Planning on making the most of your time in Japan? We can’t really blame you! There is plenty to do here in this beautiful country, with ferries sailing every day to connect the four main islands, as well as daily ferries to the beautiful Izu Islands, so you don’t have to miss out on any of the highly recommended sights in Japan whilst here for the games. There are even ferries that sail from Hakata, by the Fukuoka Hakatanomori Stadium, to South Korea and from Osaka, near the Hanazono Rubgy Stadium, to Shanghai, so you can really make the best out of your trip, and explore sights that you have never seen before.

Not got a ticket to that match you really wanted to see? Well, there are going to be ‘fanzones’ outside of every stadium during the match, with free entry, where you can watch the game on a big screen with all the other fans, as well as enjoying the local food and culture.

Be sure to book now with Direct Ferries, where we can find you the best price with the best operator, to ensure that you get the ultimate Rugby World Cup experience.
