Getting to Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa
The Japanese bullet train, also known as the shinkansen, will take you to almost directly to Shizuoka where you can watch the rugby match at the Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa.
If using the Tokaido Shinkansen, the trip from Tokyo Station is fairly fast, taking between one and a half hours of travel depending on the type of train. The Shinkansen can be used for free with a JR Pass, but please note that only the Kodama and Hikari trains are covered.
Here’s a hot tip. When booking a seat in the shinkansen, ask to book your seat in “Row E”. Stand-by with your camera at the ready between Mishima and Shin-Fuji Stations – that’s the best moment to capture a shot of Japan’s best-known summit, Mt. Fuji.
Whilst you ride the shinkansen, be sure to taste the ekiben, as do the majority of the Japanese who travel by train during mealtimes. This bento (lunch box) is a proud culture of the country. It is sold at train stations and on trains, and offers an assortment of refined dishes and is an affordable introduction to the national gastronomy.
Note: Some trains such as Kodama do not provide you the wagon service.
