We'd like to invite New Zealanders in Japan, including their partners and families, to attend an informal lunch marking Waitangi Day at the Embassy in Tokyo from noon to 2:30pm on Saturday 9 February.

The menu will include a buffet lunch, and a selection of New Zealand beer and wine. As this is a self-funding event, attendees will need to register and pay in advance (Note: There will be no door sales or entry for unregistered people).
