Hyper Japan 2014 is coming! Indulge in your J-Love this weekend 25-27 July

If you're a fan of Japanese food, fashion, art, books, film, music, pottery, video games, technology or culture, or interested in visiting the land of the rising sun for yourself, Hyper Japan is the event for you. Starting next Friday and on till Sunday at Earls Court, it's a huge showcase of all things Japanese, but with a definite slant towards to popular culture, although traditional Japan is well represented too .   Each year is bigger and better - you can attend the Sushi Awards  and the Sake Experience , sing along to a J-Pop concert  , and even watch a bunraku puppet opera starring the legendary Vocaloid. There are also smaller events running each day where you can learn to make sushi, watch a sword fight, see geisha dance, try calligraphy or origami, or download new video games for your DS . You cam also stuff yourself silly with all the gorgeous food on offer, and load up on all things kawaii  at Hyper Kawaii or uniquely Japan at the Hyper Fringe Mark
