London’s very own festival of Japanese culture – Japan Matsuri – returns on Sunday, 24 September 2017 in Trafalgar Square in the centre of the city. A regular fixture now in the London calendar, this free annual festival brings people together to enjoy Japanese food, music, dance, and activities for all the family.

Everything kicks off at 10.00am and runs through till 8.00pm. With two stages, there is plenty to see all day with an exciting programme of martial arts, the thrilling sounds of taiko drumming and festival dance. There is also the opportunity to join in with the ever popular Nodojiman karaoke contest.

As part of our 2017 programme, we are welcoming several talented guests to perform at Japan Matsuri. We will have special performances by Japanese jugglers Mimasu Monnosuke and Okinaya Wasuke, who specialise in dazzlingly complex acts of balance, dance and skill. In addition, Mr. Tachibana Umon, a celebrated specialist in Yose-Moji calligraphy, will be hosting demonstrations on the day. Stop by and have a beautiful piece of Yose-Moji made especially for you!

Follow Japan Matsuri on Facebook (@Japan.Matsuri.London) or on www.japanmatsuri.com for all the latest news.

Enjoy the atmosphere with Japanese festival food from the numerous stalls. Join in the fun in the family activities area with games and dressing in kimono. Try your hand at Japanese cartoons on the manga wall.

Japan Matsuri is organised jointly by the Japan Association, Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Japan Society and Nippon Club, with support from the Embassy of Japan and Japan House London.

Come and meet Japan Society staff at our stall on the north terrace in front of the National Gallery (opposite St. Martin in the Fields), to find out more about the Society, for Japan-themed cupcake decorating with BKD and to take part in our children’s drawing competition!
