Wasabi Tour

19 September – 6 October 2019
15 Nights / 16 Days in Japan

Overview of the Wasabi Tour

Our Wasabi 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, Ise Shima, Nagoya, Mount Fuji and Hakone. A number of excursions with our bilingual guides are included within the Wasabi 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.
