Once a year, HYPER Japan comes to London – an exhibition full of Japanese culture.
There’s enough sushi to feed an army.
You can attend talks by Manga experts and watch Sumarai sword performances. You have the opportunity to purchase a kimono or Japanese video games. Everyone gets into the spirit of things, dressing up in Cosplay (where you wear the outfit of your favourite Japanese anime character) and making origami out of brightly coloured papers.
But enough writing about it – take a look at the two minute video we made of the show below to get a real sense of what it’s like!
Thank you to HYPER Japan for providing us with two free tickets to the exhibition. As always, our views are our own.
