Hyper Japan is a 3-day show held every July in London. It’s referred to as the UK’s biggest J-Culture party, and this year I’m going!
There are tons of events happening, here are some I’m really looking forward to…
Kanon Wakeshima: J-Pop Cello Vocalist
Kanon Wakeshima is a unique artist who combines cello, classical music, contemporary J-pop and goth-loli fashion, quite a mix!
JARUJARU / Japanese Comedy Duo
I’ve always wanted to see a Manzai act live! JARUJARU are Junpei Goto and Shusuke Fukutoku, together they are one of Japan’s top comedy duos.
Japan Media Arts Festival
The Japan Media Arts Festival awards prizes for outstanding creative works in the fields of art, and will be showing 16 short films selected from their 2010 award-winners.
Sake Discovery Afternoon with Zuma
Satomi Okubo, Zuma’s Head Sake Sommelier and one of the most knowledgeable sake experts in London will be giving insights on what to drink, how to drink it, and how to pair it.
I’ll be getting lots of pics of the events and cosplayers over the course of the weekend, expect lots of quick photos and full posts when i get time. Also planning on heading to the Japan Center as I need a few bits and pieces, should be a great weekend!
