Japan Day is a showcase for everything relating to Japanese Culture, both traditional and modern. It is held once every two years, and alternates between Manchester and Liverpool. It is a free public event.
This year's Japan Day is being held in the Liverpool Guild of Students building. We'll be using the Mountford Hall and the Courtyard, giving us lots of space.
On the main stage in Mountford Hall we will have performances of taiko drumming, and Japanese folk songs from the SOAS Min'yo Group. In the Courtyard Sumie Kent will be playing the koto.
Martial Arts Demonstrations
Traditional Japanese Culture
You can watch a demonstration of kimono dressing and try on a yukata yourself! You'll be impressed by the display of bonsai trees from the Wirral Bonsai Society. And don't miss the display of Japanese swords and armour from the Northern To-Ken Society.
Manga and Anime
We will be having a cosplay competition. If you want to take part please read our Cosplay Guidelines.
