Free Events from Hyper Japan 

Fukushima Prefecture’s Virtual Booth 

Japan’s third largest prefecture has some interesting plans for their virtual booth at HYPER Online! The central theme for their exhibitions is Samurai spirit, which they’ll be displaying in three special events. 

Applications are open to join a virtual tour of the famous 630 year old Tsuruga Castle, experience Samurai training complete with demonstrations of swordplay, and even watch a traditional armoured horse race known as somanomai

S&B Virtual Booth 

S&B supply a wide range of beloved sauces and ingredients used in restaurants and homes across Japan. Since setting up shop in 1923 they’ve made their mark on the country’s cuisine, and their virtual booth will be an excellent place to learn more about the food they create. 

We’re now able to announce that two more free cook-along workshops featuring support from S&B are open for booking. Learn how to make Golden Curry Tandoori Chicken on July 25th and Fridge Leftovers Curried Pie on August 1st

You can catch the MTV nominated girl group for a special virtual presentation and live chat, featuring never before seen footage on July 10th. Tickets are on sale now, but make sure to book early since places for this event are limited!
