London's biggest Japanese festival, Japan Matsuri, will return to Spitalfields Market on September 18th. The free outdoor festival will now use both Old and New Spitalfields market, allowing for more room and more stalls this year!
Among the hundreds of traditional events and stalls, this year's Matsuri will host a cosplay competition on the canopy stage at 2:30pm! To enter, just visit the Japan Matsuri info desk and fill out a form by 2PM.
The Nodojiman song contest will also make a re-appearance, where the best singer or group will win a flight to Japan. Both the festival and competitions are free to enter.
Be sure to visit Cross Media's stand at the festival too, for more information on HYPER JAPAN and their other projects! Last year's event saw 35,000 people attending so hope to see you there!
