Hyper Japan: London Summer Festival
I've been working with Hyper Japan since it very first started back in 2010, and its definitely the highlight of my year. Imagine a 3 day Japanese cultural extravaganza, showcasing everything from fashion and cosplay, to martial arts and traditional food... and then add in tens of thousands of Japan enthusiasts!
Over the years Hyper Japan has graced many venues, from Olympia to the O2, but this time the Summer festival event was held at Tobacco Dock. Here's a little overview of the sorts of things you'll be treated to if you attend, taken at various events. Don't miss their Christmas market in November!
This year I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Harajuku fashion model Haruka Kureyabashi, so stay tuned for my article which will be featured in the next issue of MyM Magazine.
