Hyper Japan 2013

Posted on

The UK’s biggest J-culture event came to Earls Court, London this weekend. This is an annual event but it was my first time attending. There was so much to see including J-pop performances, martial arts demonstrations, fashion shows and Cosplay competitions. There were many awesome stalls showcasing artwork and selling cute home-made Kawaii accessories, clothes, toys and Japanese sweets. A large gaming area attracted many people including my niece who had a go on the new Zelda game for the 3Ds.

The main stage saw presentations by robotics companies, Japanese comic storytelling and a mix of live performances and demonstrations. An array of hot food, snacks and drinks were available and proved to be very popular judging by the queues. We arrived early but we started getting tired and a little bit bored around 3pm as we had seen most of the things they had to offer. This doesn’t mean that I had been put off, in fact I would love to go again next year and possibly even be brave and join in with the Cosplay action myself. Go to the Hyper Japan website HERE to find out more about it.
