Hi guys,

I'm going to Japan September 21st - October 14th with my brother and a friend. We are going for the Rugby World Cup and are going to see the following matches:
  1. England vs Tonga - 22nd September - Sapporo
  2. England vs USA - 26th September - Kobe
  3. England vs Argentina - 5th October - Tokyo
  4. England vs France - 12th October - Yokohama
We will be starting in Sapporo arriving there late on the 21st September and leaving from Tokyo on the 14th October. Based on the above match schedule, could anyone please suggest the perfect amount of time to spend in each city and any must-do things whilst we are there? We are also keen to stop by some other cities in between if it makes sense. We will be getting the J Rail pass to get around.

We are three guys in our mid-late twenties who do enjoy a good night out, good restaurants and want to experience some real Japanese culture etc.

Many thanks!
