Flying Fijians captain Dominiko Waqaniburotu is thankful to Akita City in Japan for hosting them in the past week.
This is before their first 2019 Rugby World Cup match next weekend.
The team will move camp today to Abashiri where they will be based before moving to Sapporo for their clash with the Wallabies.
Waqaniburotu and the Flying Fijians were hosted by Akita City to a farewell dinner on Tuesday.
Fiji Rugby Union General Manager Rugby Geoff Webster says Akita now wants to host the Fiji 7s teams next year.
‘It’s been magnificent I can’t speak more highly for what they have done for us, they are bidding to host our 7s teams for the Olympics next year, they are rolling out the red carpet for Fiji’.
Head coach John McKee also thanked Rob Penny, the Toyota Shokki club coach and his team for joining the Flying Fijians for their pre-World Cup camp.
Fiji will play the Wallabies next Saturday at 4:45pm.
