This year, the Rugby World Cup (which started 20 September) is in Japan, marking the first time the championship is taking place in Asia. Autumn is also a wonderful time to visit the Land of the Rising Sun as it's not too cold just yet and you'll have missed the summer crowds. So if you're planning to support the Springboks in this wonderfully exotic country, take a look at our list of things to do. And don't forget to activate international roaming so you can share your experiences with your family and friends!

Visit temples and gardens in Kyoto

This spiritual city boasts around 2,000 temples and shrines, including the iconic Golden Pavilion (Kinkaku-ji). It's also well known for its zen gardens, where you can spot monks going about their daily business and hear the tranquil prayer chants.

Dine in Tokyo

There's a reason Japanese cuisine is famed the world over and, in Tokyo, you can find five-star quality food on every corner. Sample street food such as takoyaki (dough filled with octopus), slurp up flavourful broths such as ramen or miso soup and try Japanese savoury pancakes, okonomiyaki. Of course, Japan's sushi and sashimi are deliciously fresh and unmissable. Pacific saury (saba) and mackerel (sanma) are the fish of autumn.

Soak in an onsen in Hokkaidō

One of the most sublime Japanese experiences ever, relaxing in hot springs is a must. Base yourself at one of the hot-spring villages near the remote Daisetsuzen National Park – Japan's largest national park – and explore active volcanoes and dense forests.

Geek out at CREATEC Japan

From 15–18 October, you can attend Japan's biggest electronics trade show. Listen to interesting discussions around future societies and see the latest gadgets before they hit South Africa.

You don't need to head to Japan to be part of the action. Take part in the Vodacom Gig Game and stand a chance to win the final score in data prizes! Click here to find out more.
