A regular fixture now in the London calendar, this annual festival brings people together to enjoy Japanese food, music, dance, and activities for all the family. And it’s FREE!

This year we are celebrating a special anniversary of 150 years of friendship between London and Japan and the story of the Satsuma Students from Kagoshima. (Read all about their inspirational story here.)
