Follow England: Sashihiki

Sashihiki Tour Japan England

Sashihiki is a Japanese term describing ‘ebb and flow’ / ‘rise and fall’.  We felt the description matched not only the balance of this tough Group C, but also the transient nature of an itinerary that rocks back and forth across Honshu island.

One of our personal favourite schedules, the Sashihiki visits no less than eight cities and presents opportunities to catch live action from other nations’ games.
