From 24th-26th November, Tobacco Dock welcomes HYPER JAPAN for the 7th year running, a celebration of Japanese culture in London. With it, it’s bringing Illuminight – a festival that lights up the night with a spin on traditional Japanese lantern crafts. Historically known as ‘akari’, these lanterns were showcased in Japanese ‘matsuri’ festivals.
But this year, up-and-coming Japanese artists have revolutionized the tradition into a technological magical light show. Illuminight is the first time anything like this has been showcased in the UK.
There’s plenty more on offer at HYPER JAPAN for art and food lovers alike.
Tickets from £15.
Address: The Tobacco Dock, Tobacco Quay, Wapping Lane, London E1W 2DA
