Tailor-made hockey tours in Japan

Field Hockey is played extensively throughout Japan at all age groups. Facilities are very good in the major cities where you would be guaranteed a very warm welcome indeed. The season very much mirrors the one in the UK so best time to tour is at the end of the UK season in April/May so you avoid any clash with domestic fixtures. Outside of hockey, Japan has a huge amount to offer the sports tourist and has a fascinating culture that you cannot fail to fall in love with.
