Go Central Japan – Rugby World Cup

Aichi Prefecture and the city of Toyota will co-host a fanzone at the Sky Hall Toyota, where all matches held at the City of Toyota Stadium and more will be shown live on a big screen for free.

Sky Hall Toyota is an indoor arena within a fifteen-minute walk from Toyotashi station on Meitetsu railway, close to the stadium itself. Live music performances will be held before matches and the venue will be equipped with a bar as well as a variety of food stalls which offer local specialties like pork cutlets with Miso sauce.

Shizuoka Prefecture plans to set up Omotenashi Areas, multiple event zones, between the Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa and a nearby railway station, Aino, on the days of the matches. Those zones will also be lined with rows of stalls offering local specialties such as Fujinomiya Yakisoba, uniquely springy noodles fried with vegetables and pork cracklings, as well as a variety of local products including green tea.

There will also be live shows of traditional Japanese music before the matches, as well as fireworks after them to celebrate the efforts made by both teams.
