Get ready to grab your yukata and pack your bento box because the Japanese Festival is coming to West End! Get ready to eat your way from Sapporo to Tokyo, from Osaka to Nagoya – all whilst staying in Brisbane.
This August, West Village will be transformed into a Japanese wonderland complete with bonsai trees, origami workshops, Japanese drumming and more Japanese food than you can shake a (yakitori) stick at. Spend the afternoon gorging yourself on yakitori, poke bowls, takoyaki, sushi donuts and bubble tea whilst enjoying traditional music and dances. For those whose tastes lend themselves to something stronger than bubble tea, there will also be whisky and sake tasting. Kanpai!
For just $10pp the festival will transport you across the seas, but better than being able to stuff your face with karrage is the opportunity to win a trip to Japan itself! All online bookings automatically enter the draw to score a sweet overseas escape.
So what are you waiting for? Pack up your tatami mats and grab your chopsticks, it’s time to bring your sumo-sized appetite to West Village on Saturday 19 August. For more information check our event listing and grab your tickets here.
