HYPER JAPAN LONDON 2010 is a brand new event, presented by the EAT-JAPAN brand, showcasing the very best of contemporary Japanese culture and cuisine. Held over three days in the iconic Old Truman Brewery, London, HYPER JAPAN will feature anime, manga, sushi, sake, street fashion, snacks, technology, exclusive branded goods and more. 

The event has been conceived to make modern Japan accessible to a young and trend-conscious audience in London. Highlights include:
• UK DEBUT FOR MILKY HOLMES
Milky Holmes, a TV anime & video game produced by Bushiroad, will make its UK debut! Already a sensation in Japan, the Milky Holmes series confirmed its status with an appearance at the recent Anime Song Live, a massive celebration of Japan’s most popular anime songs. Bushiroad will be exhibiting over all three days, and the four Milky Holmes voice actresses will be appearing live on stage on Saturday 2nd October. Watch a taster here:

For the non-challengers, Chef Matsuya’s tips will give some essential insight on starting to make delicious sushi – safely – at home:
