London’s very own festival of Japanese culture

JLGC continues its proud association with the Japan Matsuri with a stall at this year’s festival, held Sunday 29 September, showcasing the best that all Japan’s local areas have to offer.  This is the 11th year of Japan Matsuri and the event will once again be held at the iconic Trafalgar Square in London.

The matsuri (meaning ‘festival’ in Japanese) is free to attend for all the family, starting at 10am and finishing at 8pm. The matsuri features a wide variety of Japan-related performances throughout the day on the main stage, and also demonstrations on the martial arts stage.

There will be a range of stalls around the square where you can sample some of Japan’s favourite street food, and learn about Japanese culture, tourism and more.

You can read more about the event, held in the world-famous Trafalgar Square, at the Japan Matsuri website.
