Japan Foundation at Hyper Japan July 2016

A big thank you to the 2,000 visitors who came to the Japan Foundation’s stand at Hyper Japan on the 15th, 16th and 17th July 2016.

HYPER JAPAN is the UK's biggest celebration of Japanese culture, Japanese cuisine, and Japanese cool. The Japan Foundation London’s stand gave visitors a chance to find out more about Japanese arts and culture, and studying Japanese language. In celebration of the Tanabata “Star Festival” on July 7th, we also displayed bamboo on which visitors could make wishes by writing their wish on paper and hanging them on the branches.

One of the highlights of our stand was our Japan Quiz, which over 1,000 people entered. Most of the entrants got the answers right – the capital of Japan is Tokyo, and the Japanese word for “cartoon” is anime!

Out of those who answered the quiz correctly, only six people could win the Japan Foundation goody bag. Well done to our lucky winners!

We also hope that everyone who wished on our Tanabata bamboo finds their wishes come true! Photos of some of the wishes can be viewed on our Facebook page here.

Join the Japan Foundation when we hit the road at Japan Matsuri on September 25th at Trafalgar Square, and the Language Show Live at the Olympia on October 14th – 16th.
