Kashihara Sports Athletic Stadium is an athletic field type stadium located in the Kashihara Park, Nara Prefecture.
This stadium sometimes hosts Top league rugby matches.
Getting to the Stadium
Kyoto Station to Kashihara-Jingu mae Station
Kintetsu Kashihara Line
About 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes
If you are coming from a distant place such as the Kanto region, you will probably use the Shinkansen. Therefore, you will probably use Kyoto Station as a base for watching the game, or head toward Nara from Kyoto Station.
The Kintetsu Kashihara line connects Kyoto station to Kashihara-jingumae station.
The Kashihara-jingumae station is often the last station, so this station may be easier to find, but you can also get off at the previous station, Unebi-Goryo-mae station, or Kashihara-jingumae station, both of which have access to the park.
Since the park itself is large, it is better to imagine that it takes about 10 minutes to get there from the station.
Kintetsu Kashihara Line does not pass through the Nara Station area.
Therefore, if you stay at a hotel near Kintetsu Nara Station or Nara Station, or if you go to the arena after sightseeing at Todaiji Temple, it will take about one hour to change trains.
