It is two-weeks until World Rugby announces on November 2, the 2015 Japan Rugby World Cup matches on and their respective venues. At that time, rugby fans around the world will begin to make travel plans to see their team play.

Foremost advice is to buy these tickets at the RWC site and to avoid the secondary market to ensure you purchase bona fides seats.

Judgmentally, from past World Cups, the matches with the USA Eagles will not be sold out, affording American travelers the opportunity for optimum choice. The four competitors in the Eagles' pool are England, France, Argentina, and Tonga. It is doubtful that the Japanese will book tickets for these USA games. Of the four opponents, England and France should have many buyers looking to root for their sides in an easier and less crowded game.

After buying tickets, travel to and from Tokyo should constitute the next step. Train schedules can be viewed at the official railway site at www.jrpass.com. It is probably smart to arrive the day before the match.

Links to hotels and package deals should also be forthcoming.

Airfare from the States to Tokyo (currently) ranges from New York and San Francisco around $1,300 but prices vary upwards and downwards depending on departure/return dates and stopovers.
