Celebrate a day of Japanese food and culture when the much-loved Japan Matsuri returns to Trafalgar Square on Sunday 1 October for the first time since 2019! 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.

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 and to take part in our origami challenge.

Expect a huge selection of Japanese food and drink and cultural activities, plus an incredible line-up of performances from the likes of Joji Hirota & The London Taiko Drummers, Awa Odori performed by the Japan Association and so much more!
