Japan Matsuri 2018 will take place on the 30th of September (Sun) from 10am~8pm in Trafalgar Square.

Japan Matsuri started in London in 2009, and ever since it has been a yearly fixture in London’s events calendar. The festival is the largest Japanese Event in England, and since 2012 a growing number of international visitors have been flocking to Trafalgar Square to experience and learn about Japan. The event is run by the Japan Matsuri Management Committee, and organised with the help of enthusiastic and able volunteers who are interested in Japanese culture.
