A large electronic scoreboard was added to the grounds as a step toward modernization before the fifth Rugby World Cup in 2003.On April 19, 2007, it was announced that the stadium was to be equipped with lights for night games by the end of July, to assist with the RWC 2015 bid. The first rugby game under lights was Japan v Asian Barbarians in August 2007, the send-off for Japan going to RWC 2007. Since then it has been used for the first Top League game of the 2007–8 season between Suntory Sungoliath and Toshiba Brave Lupus, also played under lights and won 10–3 by the former on October 26, 2008.HistoryOriginally completed in 1947, it was at first called Tokyo Rugby Stadium. In 1953 the name was changed to Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium. The stadium also served as a venue for football matches in the 1964 Summer Olympics.The name Chichibunomiya commemorates the sporting prince, Prince Chichibu, who was not a rugby union player but was passionately fond of the sport and died in 1953. His statue is in the stadium.

  • Until the end of September top League opener is Friday night against. A little cool at night watching burn support enjoyable beer. Unlike baseball, even alcohol can be good. Free entrance on the other side is stark and stands nearby, is recommended. Grass skiing is very beautiful. Match days of Jingu Stadium next to the walkway near the front entrance, were fed up with the crowding.

  • Went by bus support, but in a jam before the usual parking lot painting Museum and take a time, parked the bus in Aoyama Street, headed to the venue. Staff was not compared with goromaru when on the road filled with people, but still way from Aoyama-Dori. Are very gouged were full-fledged clean grass Rugby field, but with a Scrum, was hurt. Chichibunomiya always becomes a shimmering grass also considerably at the end of season, and became worried. Game could return by bus to refreshing feeling to win.

  • This field is very convenient to get to from the subway and is BYO EVERYTHING, so be sure to grab a snack or a drink before heading into the game. The stadium is small and does not have very much organization with regards to vendors and food sales, but if you bring in your own, it is not a problem.
  • It is so great I like it I wish to visit it one day
