Brief listings of the 12 venues selected for the 2019 Japan Rugby World Cup hosting games:

Tokyo Stadium, Tokyo

The impressive multi-purpose location is the stage for the opening ceremony and the tournament’s first match between Japan and Russia hosts.

Yokohama Stadium, Yokohama

The cauldron-like International Stadium was the location for the 2002 World Cup title battle between Brazil and Germany and on November 2 will also hold the final of the Rugby World Cup.

Yokohama was not on the initial shortlist of locations offering host games but was included as soon as it became apparent that the new stadium being constructed in Tokyo for the 2020 Olympics would not be prepared at the moment.

Sapporo Dome, Sapporo

The capacity of Sapporo Dome, Sapporo is 41,410 out of which 2001 is already completed.

Before the 2002 soccer World Cup in Japan and South Korea, the fully integrated futuristic stadium was finished and hosted three group phase games.

Designed to hold baseball matches on an existing artificial turf, the stadium converts into a retractable grass pitch for soccer and rugby that is cultivated indoor.

Hanazono Rugby Stadium, Osaka

The capacity of Hanazono Rugby Stadium, Osaka is 24,000 out of which 1929 is already completed.

As the country’s oldest devoted rugby stadium with a rich heritage dating back 90 years, teams and supporters regard the venue as Japan’s sport’s religious home.

In 2017-18, the historic stadium underwent major renovations to prepare for the four games that it will hold during the Rugby World Cup.

City of Toyota Stadium, Toyota

The capacity of the City of Toyota Stadium, Toyota is 45,000 out of which 2001 is already completed.

Due to its high stands, the swanky Toyota Stadium, another place used during the 2002 World Cup soccer, provides spectators with an amazing perspective of the on-field practice.

Not surprisingly, the town is also Japan’s automotive manufacturer’s headquarters.
