Friday’s HYPER JAPAN started the way we’ll go on, with an amazing array of J-culture, food, and entertainment!
Our hand-picked team of volunteers was ready bright and early!
Our Main Stage was lit up by DEN Entertainment’s show THE SAKE from the first, while our HYPER KAWAii!! stage hosted the premiere screening of Kyary Pamyu Pamu’s Japanese stage show.
Favourite mascot characters were out in force! Several of our major exhibitors had cuddly critters to show off:
There were celebrations of video games both old and new:
Our world-class selections of sushi and sake were enjoyed by a huge number of our visitors:
We ended the day with a live performance from returning HJ favourites, the Kimo-Cos duo YANAKIKU!
And much, much more!
We can’t wait ’til tomorrow, and hope to see you here too!
