So Christmas edition Hyper Japan is closely approaching, where you literally are set lose in Tobacco dock for all your kawaii shopping needs. Amongst the cute Japanese trinkets there will be a variety of entertainment on offer including great live music, cosplay and the fashion show.To follow great performances at Hyper Japan they have asked the newest metal sensation Lady Baby to perform. My favourite aspect of Hyper Japan will be LadyBaby coming to the Uk to perform ! If you aren’t aware of Lady Beard and his back up singers read up about them here.Other things to enjoy would by Minori a shinori fashionista famed in the Lolita world, the fashion show showcasing all the fashions from Japan featuring British and Japanese models, the Sake experience where you pay a fee and try over 10 varieties (make sure you eat before!) and Ramen cooking by Ippudo in the first-ever Hyper Creative Studio, more acts will be announced closed to the event.
HYPER JAPAN originally started in 2010 in a modest venue in Brick Lane, and the Christmas Market will mark the 9th event in London. HYPER JAPAN festival 2015, the most recent festival held at the 02 Arena, finished successfully in July with tens of thousands of participants.
