With Rugby World Cup (RWC) 2019 just around the corner, locations have been set up where rugby fans around Japan can come together to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime experience. They’re called Fanzones, and they’re event spaces where rugby fans can enjoy RWC2019 matches together.
If you’re looking for a place to watch the matches live, or prefer an energized crowd to celebrate with, then the Fanzones are definitely for you. Located in each of the cities where RWC2019 matches will take place, the Fanzones will feature a big screen to watch the live matches, rugby-themed activities, food and drinks, and special events that celebrate each area’s local culture.
There are two areas in Tokyo which have Fanzones. The Chofu area and Yurakucho area.
The Fanzone at Chofu station is just a minute away from the Hiroba exit at Chofu Station. The Fanzone at Tokyo Sports Square is just around a minute walk away from the Kyobashi exit of Yurakucho Station. However, if you are arriving from the subway, exit D9 will take you to where you need to go.
