The Matsuri Cultural Festival In London


Impressing Japanese culture on your children might not take too much effort due to its diversity, fun and fresh vibe and wide array of activities it offers. Attending the Matsuri Festival is a great way to get your children interested in their culture by providing them with Japanese food from brightly coloured stalls and a lot of family activities. From learning how to make traditional origami and calligraphy to dressing up in traditional Japanese costumes. They will also be able to create their own drawings in front of the National Gallery.

The Festival is family-friendly, and absolutely free, and it is a great way to spend time with the family while bathing in your cultural heritage. You can also engage their interest in the many exhibitions of children’s literature and film (Akira Kurosawa is widely beloved in the United Kingdom). The Ura Matsuri alternative festival provides families with workshops and activities related to Japanese art.

Nama Ato: Japanese Outsider Art is an exhibition appropriate for entire families where three Japanese visual artists are being presented for the first time in the United Kingdom. Makoto Okawa’s creations might have a more profound meaning, but children can enjoy the colourful drawings and dolls. Yasuyuki Ueno’s work explores female characters and fashion and challenges them. Lastly Koji Nishioka’s music is both inspiring and unique. The festival celebrates artists with learning disabilities.
