TOKYO, Oct 13 (Reuters) - The under-threat Rugby World Cup game between Japan and Scotland will go ahead as scheduled, tournament organisers said on Sunday, after an inspection of the Yokohama Stadium where it is due to be played later in the day.

The decisive Pool A match had been in doubt after two Saturday fixtures were cancelled due to safety concerns surrounding Typhoon Hagibis and after Sunday's game between Namibia and Canada in Kamaishi was called off because of damage caused in the area by the storm.
