Japan Matsuri in Trafalgar Square, London
This September marked the 9th Japanese Matsuri in London. Held in Trafalgar Square it's a day long festival style celebration of Japan and its culture. This year I was covering the event for MyM Magazine (The official magazine of MCM Comic Con, which I write and photograph for each month) so I got there bright and early to capture the opening ceremony and the breaking of the sake cask (Kagami Biraki) led by the Japan Ambassador for the UK.
Just as in a traditional Japanese festival the day was filled with great food and entertainment including music, martial arts and cultural activities. Plus we had great weather! Here's a few favourites from the day.
