Mountains near the Host Cities of the Rugby World Cup

Japan will host the Rugby World Cup from September to November 2019. Twenty teams from around the globe will gather and play in 12 cities, ranging from Hokkaido in the north to Kyushu in the south.

The competition takes place in the fall and Japan's climate is great at this season for hiking in the mountains. Here we recommend popular mountains accessible from the various cities hosting the event.

Mt. Soranuma (Soranuma-dake), Mt. Eniwa (Eniwa-dake), and Mt. Sapporo (Sapporo-dake) are all close to Sapporo in Hokkaido. Daisetsuzan National Park is a little further afield but still in range. The Michinoku Coastal Trail is accessible from the Kamaishi in Iwate Prefecture.

The mountains of the Okumusashi area are close to the Saitama's Kumagaya. From Tokyo, Mt. Takao (Takao-san) and Mt. Mitake (Mitake-san) are both in Tokyo, and we also recommend the mountains in the Kanto region.

The mountains of the Tanzawa area are close to Yokohama in Kanagawa Prefecture. Don't miss Kamakura's temples and shrines, and hills while you're there.

Local hikers love Mt. Ogasa (Ogasa-yama) near Shizuoka, Mt. Sanage (Sanage-yama) close to Toyota in Aichi Prefecture, Mt. Kongo (Kongoh-san) near Osaka, and Mt. Rokko (Rokko-san) rising above Kobe.

Our recommendation for Fukuoka is hiking Mt. Homan (Hohman-zan), a sacred mountain that towers over the Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine. Our recommendations for Oita are hiking Mt. Tsurumi (Tsurumi-dake) from Beppu Onsen and Mt. Yufu (Yufu-dake), the symbol of Yufuin Onsen. And our recommendation for Kumamoto is hiking Mt. Aso (Aso-san), the largest active volcano in Japan.
