HYPER JAPAN is the largest exhibition celebrating Japanese culture to be held in the UK. Organized by Cross Media Ltd., it was first held in London 2010. Centred on Japanese cuisine and popular culture such as gaming, manga, anime and music, the event introduces a wide range of Japanese culture, encompassing technology, fashion, traditional crafts.
Having undertaken the difficult decision to postpone the Festival due to the spread of COVID-19, HYPER JAPAN is providing exclusive online content straight from Japan, including webinars, entertainment and shopping.
In July we are presenting sumi-e (Japanese ink painting) online class with Japanese calligraphy master Akemi Lucas.
Through the workshops, the students can build on traditional skills and develop their own style portraying a marriage of ancient and modern, east and west, ‘before’ and ‘after’.
