Follow Wales: Datsuzoku

Ireland Datsuzoku tour icon

Datsuzoku means ‘an escape from everyday routine’.  Tourists will join the Himawari tour group in Tokyo, taking in some of the more unusual and exciting aspects of the city before heading off to stay in a traditional Ryokan in Hakone.  Heading west, Osaka will host for four nights prior to reaching the final stages on the island of Kyushu where Wales play their final Group D games v Fiji & Uruguay, joining forces with our Omatase and Ichi-go Ichi-e Wales travel packages.  Please note early booking is required as this tour includes Ireland supporters whose games are in close proximity (promising a boisterous travel group!).
