First Brisbane Japanese Festival Happening in West End, Tickets to Japan at Stake

West Village in West End will turn into a Japanese getaway celebrating all things ‘Japan’ in August.

As part of Japan Week Brisbane celebrations, West Village is hosting the first-ever Brisbane Japanese Festival.

Attendees will be immersed in Japanese culture, from everybody’s favourite Japanese cuisine to dance and music. Japanese personalities based in Brisbane will be at the event to provide entertainment, while chefs will teach a thing or two about Japanese cuisine.

West Village will host street food stalls where people can get their fill of yakitori, gyoza, sushi, tempura, karaage, poke bowls and bento boxes with their choice of Japanese dishes. The gastronomic experience won’t be complete without the sake, whiskey and bubble. There will be bars to serve Japanese drinks.

Bonsai gardens, origami folding, lanterns and Japanese drumming will provide the perfect atmosphere to give guests a sampling of Japanese culture.
