In the first of Rugbypass.com‘s new Rugby World Cup 2019 city guides, Jaybor Staunton visits the prefecture of Fukuoka, which sits on the northern shore of Japan’s Kyushu Island.
Famous for it’s shrines, great food and nightlife, there is plenty to see and do in Fukuokoa. Jaybor goes on a Yanagawa River cruise, before sampling some local specialties and gets a run-out in the 22k seater Fukuoka Hakatanomori Stadium.
Fukuoka will play host to Ireland, Italy, France, Samoa and USA during the Rugby World Cup, so if you’re visiting for a game, be sure to make the most of this stunning part of Japan.
