The Japan Rugby World Cup 2019 is shaping up to be one of the year’s most talked about sporting events! It’s looking like it’s going to be some competition, one that will hopefully put Japan on the sporting world map, as well as bringing some much-needed attention to all the other the really cool cities that the country has on offer, outside of the mega-popular Tokyo. My hometown of Osaka is one of these cities, and although it’s probably one of the most visited places in the country, I think it still has so much to offer for anyone who is visiting for Rugby World Cup 2019. My city has a really unique vibe to it that nowhere else in Japan has, it takes its food super seriously and there’s pretty much endless things to do in Osaka. Add to all of this the fact that it’s one of the friendliest places in the whole country. So this is my ultimate Japan Rugby World Cup guide for Osaka, a place where you’ll find all of the tips that you need for your trip, as well as a list of my all-time favourite, unmissable Osaka attractions. So get your Rugby World Cup tickets booked and come and see my city!
