Running from 11am until 7pm, there’ll be Japanese food stalls, cultural exhibits, and market stalls, along with a host of on-stage performances running from start to finish.

From orchestras and bamboo flutes, to dance productions and martial arts exhibitions, the stage performances program is stacked.

Those looking for more hands on activities can get involved in a variety of workshops and presentations, including the Bonsai Society Of Western Australia; the Fukushima Society; Gundam model kit building; sanshin and sanba lessons; Yobe Cosplay; York Wara art and more.

Foodies will have a field day too thanks to the likes of Batter Up Taiyaki, Fumi’s Japanese Pancakes & Noodles, Ninja Cuisine, Oishii Japanese Street Food, Shikisai Japanese Cooking Class, Tokyo Baby Cakes, Yatai By Cheese & Charcuterie and oodles more.
