HYPER JAPAN Returns In July

HYPER JAPAN, the UK's biggest celebration of Japanese culture, cuisine and cool, is back for 2013.

Diverse exhibitors, stores, performers and fans will once again come together to bring the very best of contemporary and traditional Japan to the heart of London.

Since the first HYPER JAPAN in 2010, there have three subsequent events, each one more popular than the last, and HYPER JAPAN has become a widely anticipated fixture for many fans of Japanese culture.

The last event, HYPER JAPAN 2012 Christmas, was the largest to date, attracting 46,000 visitors.
