I fell in love with Japan during a trip to Kyoto earlier this year. From the luscious food to the courteous people, I’d return in a heartbeat (why oh why can’t I teleport?). Warm welcoming smiles, fresh wholesome food that put vegetables firmly back as the main starrer in my diet, I loved Japan including the 30°C heat. I am just putting the finishing touches to a special Japanese feature, so do keep your eyes peeled.

If like me, you too love Japanese culture, then put these following dates in your diary.


From 24-26 November, head over to Tobacco Dock for the Hyper Japan Christmas 2017 festival. Consider this to be your one-stop experience for all things Japanese in London. With Christmas around the corner, your diary will no doubt be filling up. Put this in your diary stat, because it’s going to be a fun, fabulous event.


What’s Hyper Japan about? It’s a celebration of Japanese culture.


Take in the festive atmosphere with family and friends and learn about Japanese traditions, whilst enjoying live performances and demonstrations.


Savour everything from sake to sushi and sweets, or try crafts or watch martial arts.


Learn some Japanese, or get travel advice about your trip to Japan.


It’s going to be cool, cute and crazy. For more information about Hyper Japan 2017, hop on over to their website. See you there at the UK’s biggest Japanese culture event.
