Hyper Japan have announced they will be holding a Matsuri festival event at London Olympia on the 29th NOvember to the 1st December.

An iconic festival, the Matsuri were born in ancient times with people giving thanks at local shrines, developing over the centuries into a bigger and brighter celebration.

The focus is very much on community, with the festival offering authentic food, drink and Japanese treats.

From the website:

Edo Matsuri will be very different to the much-loved eclectic Japan-celebration of HYPER JAPAN Festival. This winter event will be a smaller and cozier, more intimate exploration of Japanese Matsuri, with visitors becoming a part of the Matsuri itself.

The experience begins when you enter Edo Matsuri through a big, red torii gate and find yourself in the lantern-lit world of a Japanese Matsuri market. You will be met with high quality arts and crafts, food, drinks and Japanese-themed stalls as well as the main stage, workshops, food and various other areas.

Tickets will be sold online shortly, in the meantime keep yourself up to date via the official website.
