    The ANZCCJ Gourmet Food & Wine Garden Party is a celebration of Australia and New Zealand's world-class food and wine culture.

    Enjoy gourmet Australian and New Zealand food and beverages in the beautiful Australian Embassy garden in the company of fellow ANZCCJ members, our co-hosts the Tokyo Chamber of Commerce and Industry (TCCI), and friends. 

    One of our most popular events of the year, the Gourmet Food & Wine Garden Party showcases ANZCCJ members in the food, agriculture and hospitality sectors.  This year the evening will be a special pop up restaurant style event under the theme of Australian and New Zealand organic and sustainable food.

    The organic and sustainable food industry in Australia and New Zealand has been gaining popularity in recent years with market segment share growing by 8-20% annually depending on the product.  Did you know that Australia and New Zealand are two of only six countries outside of the European Union that have an organic certification system that is deemed equivalent to that of Japan's?

    Thank you for following us on social media as we revealed our participating restaurants.  We are now pleased to present the six dishes that guest will be able to enjoy at the event.

    Those who crave not only an amazing meal, but an exciting dining experience will need to book quickly.  Reserve online.  Tickets are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

    Join the international business community in Tokyo as we celebrate two years to Japan's hosting of the Rugby World Cup in 2019! 

    Starting today, tournament organisers will be kicking off a nationwide Rugby World Cup 2019 two-years-to-go festival in Tokyo.  The festival will reach a fitting climax at the international stadium in Yokohama, coinciding with the Japan v Australia match on 4 November, almost two years to the day before the Rugby World Cup 2019 final is played at the very same venue.

    On 2 November, exactly two years before the tournament's final match, the match schedule for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan will be unveiled.  So far we know that the opening match is scheduled for 20 September 2019 at Ajinomoto Stadium in western Tokyo, and that the final is set to take place at the 70,000-seat Nissan Stadium in Yokohama.  20 teams from around the world and a total of 48 matches will be played in 12 venues across the whole of Japan.

    This will be the first time the tournament is held in Asia and outside of the sport’s traditional strongholds.  Japan 2019 is set to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience and fans will soon be able to start planning with the announcement of match locations and details of how, where and when to purchase tickets and hospitality packages.

    Join us on 2 November for a discussion on the topic What the Rugby World Cup means for business in Japan  with a panel made up of:
