HYPER JAPAN New announcements, upcoming events and Pride month

Happy Pride month from HYPER JAPAN!

HYPER JAPAN ONLINE 2021 is drawing closer, and the team is getting busy bringing everything together. We’re also celebrating Pride month right now so you can expect to see some updates to the website, as well as a few themed events like our pop art workshop which features a rainbow redesign of Hokusai’s Fuji. It’s time to start marking events on the calendar!

Free Online Cookery

On the 11th and 29th of July we’ll be hosting free cooking classes with some help from Otafuku Sauce. That means an extra twist of deliciousness to be added into our two selected recipes: the popular pancake style Okonomiyaki and the stir fried noodle dish Yakisoba! These everyday favourites from Japan will be introduced to participants by professional chefs from the Japanese cuisine specialists Sozai Cooking School.

Sip from the world of Sake

One of the most exciting events in the near future is our unique Sake Experience. HYPER JAPAN has partnered up with a variety of different Sake breweries in Japan, and will running a series of sessions from July to August to connect you to the experts behind the production of this iconic drink.

Participants will need to purchase a tasting box before joining their online session, where professional representatives of the brewery who created those samples will be waiting. Discover the basics of sake, and learn about each drink while you embark on a virtual tour inside the brewery.
