Kamaishi Recovery Memorial Stadium is a rugby stadium in Kamaishi City, Iwate Prefecture, Japan.
When the Rugby World Cup 2019 was held, one match was held, but one match was cancelled due to a typhoon.
Getting to the Stadium
If you are coming from Tokyo, the stadium is quite difficult to get to.
If it is a Rugby World Cup level event, shuttle buses are available from Shin-Hanamaki Station and Morioka Station, where the Tohoku Shinkansen stops. Unodome station is the nearest station.
Unozome station is the closest station, but the Sanriku Railway does not connect to the Shinkansen station, so if you are coming to this area to watch the games, you will not have a chance to use this station.
