Hyper Japan Festival is returning to London once again as a live event for the first time since 2019, after two years of disruption and virtualisation. Initially launched in 2010, Hyper Japan Festival is a dedicated and immersive celebration of Japanese culture and traditions — both modern and old — showcasing everything from music and live entertainment to food, shopping and fashion to live cosplay and anime. Interested? Here’s the full lowdown.
