The popularity of football in Tokyo has grown since the formation of the J-League in 1999. FC Tokyo was formed at this time. It is one of several teams in the Greater Tokyo area along with Kawasaki Frontale, Urawa Reds and Yokohama F. Marinos amongst others.
Mac, Founder and Lead Guide of Maction Planet, is a passionate FC Tokyo supporter and loves helping people enjoy matches (even if they do not involve beloved FC Tokyo!). We have seen many guests become addicted to the unique atmosphere of football in Tokyo after just one match, just as he was. His first game was a nail biting 3-2 victory against Gamba Osaka. Thinking it would be impossible to top this, his second game was an unbelievable 5-4 victory against Kawasaki Frontale, with Tokyo coming back from 3-1 down at half time to triumph, with the winning goal scored in the 94th minute!
If you are a football fan, a sports nut, or just like to have a good time, then taking in a game while you are here will be right up your street. Check out the atmosphere experienced by our guests here, with video footage of FC Tokyo fans singing their signature song ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.
Other sports our guests have enjoyed in Tokyo include Rugby and Baseball. As with everything we do at Maction Planet, your Rugby, Baseball and Football in Tokyo experience can be fully customised around the rest of your time touring the World’s Greatest Metropolis.
