Olympia National Hall
Welcome to HYPER JAPAN, the UK's biggest and best J-culture event, celebrating all aspects of contemporary Japanese culture, from fashion to food, crafts to cosplay!
Come see artisans, practitioners and stallholders give visitors a glimpse into time-honoured cultural traditions and cutting-edge innovations. Join us as they introduce exciting products and performances which reveal various fascinating aspects of Japan. Visitors who wish to learn more about Japan through literature, language lessons, or even a holiday to this distant island, can also find help and guidance in the culture area.
Our ever-popular EAT-JAPAN area will once again satisfy visitors in search of authentic Japanese taste sensations. A varied selection of stalls will offer hot and cold foods, alcoholic and soft drinks and much else besides. We look forward to you falling in love with the myriad flavours of the culinary heaven that is Japan.
HYPER JAPAN is of course the best place in the UK to enjoy and purchase a wide range of Japanese food, but don't forget about the unrivalled array of beverages on offer too, particularly sake. There are many opportunities throughout the event to enjoy a range of premium sake, including a sparkling variety, cocktails and more, with expert advice on what's on offer.
HYPER JAPAN has always been something of a haven for lovers of Japanese fashion in the UK. J-style enthusiasts will be delighted with our HYPER Kawaii area, which offers a wide selection of clothes, makeup, wigs and accessories hailing either from Japan or UK designers inspired by Japanese aesthetics.
