Join the All Blacks on tour in Japan

Fans will have the unique opportunity to join the All Blacks on tour in Japan this November.

New Zealand Rugby announced last month that the All Blacks will play Japan in Tokyo on Saturday 2 November at Prince Chichibu Memorial Rugby Stadium, Japan's national rugby stadium, before heading onto Europe for the All Blacks Air New Zealand European Tour.

All Blacks Tours has put together a special five night tour package for supporters wanting to make the most of this opportunity to visit Japan.

Flying Air New Zealand, fans will be able to soak up all the sights of Tokyo while also cheering on the boys in black at the game on 2 November.

All Blacks Tours General Manager, David Caldwell, says All Blacks Tours has already received strong interest in the Japan match.

“The All Blacks have only played Japan four times before: twice in Japan in 1987 (the matches weren't given Test match status) and at the 1995 and 2011 Rugby World Cups.

“This promises to be a historical match and will give Kiwis the chance to get a taste of Japan in the lead up to Rugby World Cup 2019 which will be held in Japan.”

As well as return economy flights, accommodation and official match tickets to the All Blacks vs. Japan test, the package also includes a city tour of Tokyo, official All Blacks merchandise and a Tour Talk event where supporters will have the opportunity to gain a unique insight into how the team prepares in the lead up to the matches.

Spaces on the five night Tokyo tour are limited, so fans are urged to book their place before packages sell out.

For more information visit or call the All Blacks Tours team on 0800 87 2011.
