Japan: The Higashiosaka Hanazono Rugby Stadium
Built in 1929, the Hanazono Rugby Stadium in the city of Higashiosaka is one of Japan's leading rugby specific stadium, long famous as a venue for national high school rugby tournaments. For over ninety years this stadium has been part of the history of Japanese rugby, and it is now rightly considered a mecca for rugby in Japan. Having being chosen to host matches for the 2019 Rugby World Cup, in 2018 the stadium's equipment and facilities were renovated, including the installation of TOA sound systems designed to deliver clear sound to both playing field and spectator stands.
The broadcast status within the stadium can also be confirmed visually via computer monitors in the control room, improving system operability and reducing operator burden. Additionally, the system also uses digital wireless technology to help reduce radio interference, mobile sound wagons, and portable speakers, and is designed to accommodate the sound needs of events beyond rugby matches.
