Rugby World Cup 2019 Japan Travel etc...

Hi All, 

New poster here - I know its quite a bit of time away and the 2018 6N is only starting this weekend, but has anyone thought of the world cup?

I see tickets are on sale already at very reasonable prices for the group games. Are these expected to sell out? Living in Australia and contemplating the trip over.
Be interested to hear from anyone on here that would be travelling or has traveled to previous world cups.

Thanks

The individual game tickets are not on sale yet, only packages for all the games of one team or all the games in one stadium. They are also done on a ballot rather than first come first served. The individual game tickets will be sold in a similar manner later in the year - there will be an application window and a ballot done after that.

Got an email last night saying that I was successful in the ballot for 2 CAT D tickets for Ireland's 4 games...
Works out at about €400 for them.

I've 9 days to decide if I want them or not.

It's fookin tempting. Even though I had already told myself that it's too expensive a trip to justify... maybe it's not???

I was unsuccessful in the ballot despite doing everything to maximise my chances

If you don't want to take the tickets then we should talk!!

Reckon if the funds allow and I can do it, will do it with one of the travel companies with guaranteed tickets. Tend to be very well organised.

A kidney and a lung

Packages range from 4K to 13k

Doubt there will be any cheap way to do it.

Obviously Japan will be Irelands best chance to win a world cup yet so a lot of people would like to go. But Japan is far away and expensive to get to. I'd say the majority of the Irish crowd travelling will be coming from new Zealand and Australia.

Booked one of the packages last night, the wife and I are going.

Having used this years holidays already and needing next years for the RWC I might not make that far!!

I've already got some Airbnb booked for Tokyo for the QF weekend. I'm going to do everything myself,I'll fly from Boston.

those packages are insanely expensive.
And needless to say the public transport in Japan is second to none.

Luckily my wife seems to enjoy my hairbrained loosely organised trips, there's an extra buzz from the anxiety release when you make it!

I'm doing QF,SF and final if I can get tickets(unlikely for the final), with the hope Ireland can make the SF (here we go again).

I also want to do activities in japan in the weeks between matches. I intend to eat a lot of ramen.

The great thing is the population density of Japan means that the rugby world cup should barely put a dent in hotel market.
