JPF @ SMASH! Sydney Manga and Anime Show

July 13-14, 2019

Celebrate Japanese pop culture at one of our favourite expos, SMASH! Sydney Manga and Anime Show! Come in your best cosplay gear and join in on the fun. There will be contests, shows and creative activities. You’ll also get the chance to meet special guests from Japan!

Don’t forget to visit our booth to see an exclusive display of traditional Japanese kites handmade by Tokyo-based master craftsman Mikio Toki, whose works will be shown in our Edo in the Sky: Traditional Kites of Japan exhibition. You can also ask us about our upcoming events, language courses

Get hands-on with kite making at our free 2-hour workshop, led by Toki, during SMASH! on Saturday, July 13 from 2 to 4pm. You’ll use bamboo and washi paper to make bowed, rectangular Edo kite.

Since the chosen kite design can be tricky to make, the workshop is recommended for ages 12+. Younger children are also welcome to participate with the assistance of a parent or guardian.
