Pack a picnic to enjoy on the grass under the shade of a tree, or why not try some homemade Japanese sweets from An-an Wagashi and Tokyo Bakery, plus a range of organic fine foods from Clearspring.

Take part in our treasure trail, learn all about haiku with acclaimed poet, Paul Conneally, or try your hand at folding origami animals or writing your name in Japanese with our wonderful team of volunteers.

Expect exciting performances from Thames Daiko, and gather around for Bon Odori dancing. Plus demonstrations from Tamakurya Boutique, Kendama London, and Ikenobo Ikebana UK & Ireland!
