Hyper Japan events are always lots of fun so I was very excited to visit the Christmas Market at Olympia last weekend. I chose the Saturday morning session which was from 9 til 3 and got to Olympia around 11. It was Mega-Kawaii Heaven with so many stalls selling adorable plushies, decora accessories and cute food. Some of my favourite stalls were:
Cakes With Faces with their cute and funny designs on t-shirts and cushions.
MeowMeowCookie with their range of delightful cat cookies.
Supercute Macarons selling delicious and kawaii macarons and cupcakes. The Nutella cupcake I had was so moist and yummy!
Tofu Cute which was so popular they had queues all day and where I bought the majority of my purchases. I just couldn’t resist the cuteness.
I also really enjoyed watching Siro-A and Anna Yano perform on the main stage, as well as all the amazing cosplayers! The only negative was that I found the hot food stalls over-priced and disappointing but maybe that was my bad choices. On the whole, I had an amazing day and could’ve stayed a lot longer.
Next year’s Hyper Japan Christmas Market will be on 27-29 November at Tobacco Dock in London and there’s a Summer festival too, so put those dates in your diary now and follow their Facebook page for updates!
