Venue:
Spitalfields Traders Market
Nearest Tube: Liverpool Street, Aldgate, Aldgate East

Join us in celebration of Japan and its rich culture, arts & crafts as we welcome the Autumn season at one of London’s most vibrant markets! Situated in the heart of the city, Spitalfields Traders Market offers a unique spot for East to meet West.
Whether you are a londoner, missing home or have a bit of curiosity, this will be a fantastic opportunity for you to experience some of the most exciting entertainment in London, delight in exquisite Wa-shoku (Japanese cuisine) and get involved in as many interactive events as you can think of throughout the day.
Matsuri in Japan are a celebration of a local community; they involve local organisations, groups of friends and families. Even the major festivals, which attract visitors from all over Japan and the world, have their roots in community.
Japan Matsuri at Spitalfields is no different. 150 years since the start of formal diplomatic relations with Japan, London now has a Japanese community of over 60,000 people. This is their opportunity to celebrate with their friends of any nationality and with their families.
Bringing together music, dance, food, theatre, games and family activities, we look forward to welcoming you to Japan Matsuri in Spitalfields.
There is something for everyone: whether you have lived in Japan and feel nostalgic for the sights and smells of matsuri; are a Japanese student, office worker or artist keen to get together with friends; or are simply curious about Japan and what it looks like in London.
