Events: This weekend HYPER JAPAN Festival @ Olympia London

Hello everyone,

It’s now just mere days until this year’s Hyper Japan (15th – 17th of July 2016) and we are really looking forward to being at the event on Saturday.

If you are going to be there let us know and maybe we can manage to meet up?!?


Last year we found plenty of kawaii cat stuff at the Tofu Cute stall so we will be sure to stop by this one again. 🙂


How many cute things can we find at the Tofu Cute stall this year? Anyone wants to take guesses? 😀

They had such a huge variety of plush toys last year that I could have easily spent my entire YEARS’ salary on cute cat related items!!!

And we just got the news that one of our favourites will be at this years’ event MeowMeow cookies!

MeowMeowCookies are cute cat shape party cookie gifts with a big smiles. They love parties and events. Each one comes with a tag so that you can write your lovely message to your friends & family. The ethos of these designs are that ‘Animals are our gift’, so we must look after their future as well as our own.

MeowMeowCookies actively supports charities and helping others in general!

And who wouldn’t want a jar of cute cookies??? We can’t wait to pop by their stall! 😀

For those of you unfamiliar with the event it’s all about Japanese culture which of course includes plenty of cat themed gifts! 😀 And this year is extra special as it marks the 10th Hyper Japan festival in London. Please find full details below.

Britain’s largest celebration of Japanese popular culture, HYPER JAPAN, is returning this summer for its tenth edition in London on 15-17 July.

Back by popular demand at Olympia London following a hugely successful Christmas Market in 2015, the summer festival will be offering more of the most vibrant and alternative aspects of J-culture from music to food to anime and gaming.

Tens of thousands of J-culture enthusiasts are expected to convene to enjoy headlining performances from Japanese electro/rap duo and the singer Azumi Inoue, who frequently sings for Studio Ghibli, the famous anime film studio.

The festival will also feature the crowd favourite COSTest (a cosplay competition) and an array of interactive crafts-orientated activities at HYPER Creative Studio, where attendees can create their own “Kokeshi” dolls amongst other classes.

The Land of the Rising Sun’s unique tastes and flavours are plentiful once more, as Sake Experience 2016 returns, where people can taste and buy premium sake from breweries from Japan, along with an extensive line-up of street food vendors. J-lovers can binge on alternative confectionary treats from Matcha Kit Kats to Kakigoori to DIY Candy Kits!

HYPER JAPAN’s Managing Director, Kazuhiro Marumo said “I’m looking forward to welcoming London to our milestone, tenth HYPER JAPAN Festival 2016. After growing popularity it’s great to see Japanese culture becoming a staple in the capital’s event calendar. For our tenth festival we are working harder than ever to ensure the magic of Japan is captured at Olympia and is delivered to our loyal attendees and newcomers.”

HYPER JAPAN Festival 2016 will be taking place from Friday 15 July 2016 to Sunday 17 July 2016 at Olympia London.
