Throughout the weekend, there will be talks, demonstrations, parades and other events showcasing manga, anime, fashion, martial arts, film, music, games and other aspects of Japanese culture, past and present, as well as retail stalls and artist stands. Hot and cold Japanese food will also be available to purchase.
