New Zealand’s Giant Rugby Ball Opens in Tokyo

The Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism John Key will formally open the New Zealand Rugby Ball Venue in Tokyo today.

The unique structure, sited next to the Tokyo Tower, will be open from 28 October to 3 November.

Today’s opening will unite Japanese and New Zealand cultures, with a formal Māori miki whakatau, or welcome, which will be responded to by a Shinto Priest carrying out a formal blessing.
