Japan Centre is proud to announce our third Japan Food Festival (JAFF), 27th July – 12th August at our Regent Street Store in collaboration with the Fukuoka Chamber of Commerce and Industry!
Sample local produce from this fertile southern island, never before sold in the UK! Get your hands on exclusive regional specialities and experience the culinary diversity and beauty of Kyushu right here in London. Featuring free tastings every day from 3 – 6pm the event features limited edition Kyushu products for 2 weeks only, make sure you don’t miss out!
Japan Centre are lucky enough to have the talented members of the British Origami Society on hand to demonstrate the beautiful 17th century art of Japanese origami paper-folding Sunday 1st July, 12pm – 3pm at Westfield Stratford City.  Join us as we see some amazing creations come to life, as well as get the chance to test your own origami skills (and count the paper cuts!) with some hands-on tutorials. There’s even a free origami crane for the kids!
Ahh I remember my student days fondly. Lots of parties, lots of drinking and lots of sleeping. Unfortunately though, not a lot of money. This is why Japan Centre is here to help and support you! We know how daunting it can be thinking about how much you have left to spend on proper food instead of that 8p pack of instant noodles or yet another week’s worth of pasta… so we’ve introduced a student discount!
