Football Tours to Kyoto, Japan

Our football tours to Kyoto in Japan incorporates all of the major touristic spots as well as unique towns that meet our mantra of experiencing the real insight into a foreign land.

Second to the USA in the Women’s Football World Cup final 2015, Japan’s consistency is attributed to a nation that embraces sporting participation at a very young age, with high school students taking part in daily football training. A naturally athletic nation, taking on Japanese football teams on one of our football tours to Japan requires a high cardiovascular threshold. Expect to play for the full 90 minutes and for games to be tight. With a unique and enticing culture, it’s little wonder why so many teams are now considering a football tour to Japan as their next venture.

We also offer the opportunity to play football in other locations in Japan, or simply as place to visit. Osaka, Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Kobe, Kyoto, Toyama, Nagano, Yokohama, Hakuba and Tokyo form our operating bases where home stays are available as part of your football tour to Japan.

Seeing is believing and we invite you to travel with us to experience a very unique football tour experience in this far eastern region.
