John Kirwan

Kea John Kirwan Event

On Wednesday 8 December, Kea Japan will host an evening with legendary All Black and current Japan National Rugby Team coach John Kirwan at the New Zealand Embassy in Tokyo.

With the 2011 Rugby World Cup to be held in New Zealand next year, we thought this would be the opportune time to get some personal commentary from one of New Zealand’s greatest rugby players.  Local based musician Kat McDowell who was born in Japan but spent the majority of her childhood in New Zealand will also play at the event. Kat is a brilliant talent and will provide some great entertainment on the night.

With Japan having been selected as host for the Rugby World Cup in 2019, we are expecting a number of Japanese friends to be in attendance. adidas have very kindly agreed to support the event and a number of adidas goods and prizes including a signed All Blacks jersey will be given away on the night. Air New Zealand has also very generously donated to Kea Japan a return airfare to New Zealand which one lucky individual will take home on the night.  

Date: Wednesday, 8 December
Time: 19:00 to 21:30 (doors open at 19:00)
Venue: New Zealand Embassy, Tokyo
Cost: 8,000 yen
