New Zealandís unique Giant Rugby Ball, which has already appeared in Paris and London to help support New Zealandís build up as hosts of the Rugby World Cup 2011, will visit Tokyo in October.

The Ball will be open between 28 October and 3 November next to the iconic Tokyo Tower in central Tokyo, a high-profile site which draws around 3.2 million people annually and around 10,000 a day.

The latest positioning of the ball coincides with an All Blacks-Wallabies Test match and two major business and diplomatic events - The Japan-New Zealand Business Council and The Japan-New Zealand Partnership Forum.

The structure is a versatile space that can host up to 160 guests. An eye-catching and innovative sound and light show of New Zealand tourism, nature, culture, food and wine and creative industries is projected on to the inner structure.

During the installation, over 7000 people are expected to enter the ball and enjoy the video show. In the evenings, it will become the hub for New Zealand-hosted trade and industry events and functions, taking the best of NZ Inc. to the world.
