Just over 2 weeks until Hyper Japan returns to the iconic Olympia London with its heady mix of contemporary and traditional Japanese culture and cuisine over three jam-packed, fun-filled days from 12th to 14th July 2019.

Hyper Japan will celebrate its 10th year in the capital with a truly unique event offering fun for the whole family, be it colourful and kawaii (cute) cosplay, cutting-edge tech or a delicious combination of Japanese food and drink. Featuring well-known performers, exhibitors and creative workshops, Hyper Japan is the ultimate event for certified Japanophiles and those new to Japanese culture alike. Drawing inspiration from traditional as well as futuristic Japan, it introduces both new and established trends in Japan’s music, food, drink, fashion, technology and kawaii scenes - some exhibitors even manage to combine both!

J-style enthusiasts can enjoy the HYPER Kawaii area, which offers a wide selection of clothes, makeup, wigs and accessories guaranteed to turn your wildest costume fantasy into a reality! You'll also be able to browse the many Japan and UK-based fashion stalls  and pick out a new Japanese look for your summer wardrobe.

Hyper Japan will also feature the ever-popular EAT-JAPAN area for those in search of authentic Japanese taste sensations. A varied selection of stalls will offer hot and cold foods including ramen, yaki soba, katsu curry, Japanese sweets and authentic tea - YUM! You can also pre-book tickets to enjoy the Ramen Experience or the Sake Tasting which take place across all three days.

Diverse artisans, practitioners and stallholders offer a rare glimpse into a number of Japan's long-established traditions and cutting-edge innovations, whilst also introducing exciting products and performances which utilise the best of both. Keen to learn more? Head to the HYPER Live! Stage, the HYPER Theatre, the J-Culture Showcase, J-Culture Activity workshops, and the “ASAKUSA” Culture Zone!
