Third week of Japan 2019 Tour

Third week of Japan 2019 Tour

I am so looking forward to my first visit to Japan, to sing and watch some rugby in October.

I’m being very kindly hosted by Lauri Palmu, a good friend of many Finnish friends of ours in Kobe, the home of wagyu beef and Dan Carter! See what I did there?!
