Watch the Rugby World Cup 2019 in Kyoto and Tokyo at Man in the Moon Pubs
The time has come! The 9th Rugby World Cup is headed to Japan this month starting from September 20th to November 2nd. History is being made with the tournament's Asian debut and Japanese rugby fans couldn't be happier. Matches will be held at venues all across Japan, from Kyushu to Hokkaido.
While some people worry that Japan does not have enough beer for the RWC 2019, we promise to keep the pints coming at our pubs.🍺🍺🍺 There's nothing we love more than beer and live sports.
You can watch the Rugby World Cup at our pubs in Kyoto and Tokyo. Most locations will be broadcasting all of the matches, but please refer to the list below:

Our sister pub Pig & Whistle will also be showing the matches in Kyoto.

See you soon,
Man in the Moon
In Downtown Kyoto, just a little North of Kyoto's main street (Shijo street), a hop and a skip west of the Kamogawa river and the fashionable Geisha district (Gion area), a stone's throw from the busiest market in the city, (Nishiki market), and a 3 minute walk from pedestrian shopping street Teramachi street, lies a hidden gem. A one-way street filled with quirky shops, restaurants and pubs, with a cheery local vibe among all the business owners, lined with little lanterns, Yanaginobanba street is also known as the Little Lantern street, in Japanese chouchinkouji (提灯小路). If you can get your tongue around the pronunciation (it helps to sing the song La Bamba: ba-dabamba-badidadi-bamba), let us welcome you to Yanaginobanba street, the little Lantern street, and the home of Man in the Moon Rokkaku
