If you’re in London this weekend then you need to get yourself down to the Japan Matsuri in Spitalfields Market taking place tomorrow, Saturday 18th September from 10am – 8pm.
Japan Matsuri is similar to the local festivals held throughout Japan and they invite you to celebrate Japanese festival culture, listen to music, watch performances, try new activities and (of course) eat good food! It looks like a great day out and the list of stalls is making me very hungry!
Once you’ve stuffed your face with onigiri and bought all the kawaii you can carry, why not join in with one of the activities? There’s a cosplay contest, an art competition and you can learn the basics of origami. Wish I could be there!
