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.
HYPER JAPAN and S&B are hosting a Virtual Curry Dinner Party, where you can meet Japanese curry lovers across the UK, share your recipe ideas, and have dinner together.
The party includes a special cooking lesson from chef Avinash Shashidhara, who will teach you tips and tricks to enhance your Japanese Curry!
Before the party, you will receive a pack of S&B Golden Curry to prepare for the big day.
After the party, you will also receive a gift set of fantastic S&B products!
