Overview of the Origami Tour

This tour is currently sold out and we are in the process of securing additional places. If you wish to be notified if/when this tour becomes available again, please click the ‘Be Notified’ button above and fill out your details. Below are the details of the original tour and should we secure additional places, these details may change.

Our Origami Tour includes Ireland’s first three matches in pool A including the opener against Scotland, followed by  hosts Japan. All three matches include official match tickets. First up is the massive Ireland v Scotland match. Whoever wins that has a great chance of winning pool A and will probably avoid New Zealand in the quarter-finals. Next up is Ireland v Japan and the atmosphere created by both the hosts fans and Irish fans will be epic. The final match of this tour sees Ireland play Russia in what could hopefully be a big swing on their scoring difference.

Over 16 days you will travel across stunning Japan using the famous Bullet trains as well as our executive coaches. Location highlights include Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Odwara, Mount Fuji and Hakone. A number of excursions with our bilingual guides are included within the Origami Tour package price. The language barrier should not be underestimated and our bilingual guides will help you to truly connect with the Japanese people and their culture.

We have also included a number of sociable lunches / dinners throughout the tour.

Finally, you will be invited to our Rugby World Cup 2019 Information Evening that will take place in Dublin, November 2018. Details will be forwarded to you closer to the time.
