Hyper Japan is an event all about Japanese culture. It’s on twice a year, at Christmas and in the summer. The summer festival is the larger event, with more stage performers and lots going on!

Hyper Japan July 2018

New Venue

For the past couple of years Hyper Japan has been at Tobacco Dock in London, and this summer it’s back at Olympia, which is easy to get to from Kensington High Street.

What’s at Hyper Japan?

Hyper Japan is an event about Japanese culture, both traditional and modern. It has a great variety of stalls, workshops and performers, and is the UK’s largest Japanese event. It’s definitely worth visiting if you’re interested in any aspect of Japanese culture.

  • Japanese food stalls
  • Bands and performers from Japan
  • Stalls with all kinds of cute things
  • Special guests, meet and greets and talks
  • Anime screenings
  • Japanese tourist boards
  • Fashion and cosplay shows
  • Craft workshops
  • Cooking tutorials
  • Sake and ramen tasting experiences and awards

Hyper Japan Floor Plan

I’ll be posting a floor plan here as soon as it’s available – usually around a month before the show. Follow Cakes with Faces on Twitter or Facebook for updates!


Tickets are available from the Hyper Japan website. In previous years, there have been weekend and day tickets. On Saturday it’s split into two sessions, so you can choose the morning or afternoon.

Friday is usually the least crowded day if you can make it then. Not all performers are there every day, so check the schedule if there’s anything in particular you want to see.

Watch my video from last summer to see what it’s like! If you have any questions just get in touch.

Last time was extra special because Dreamy Bows brought Harajuku icon Haruka Kurebayashi to Hyper Japan as a special guest! I met her at their kawaii party – which was the cutest night ever – where I asked her all-important and 100% serious interview questions like: what are your favourite sweets???
