Cool Japan Festival, High Street Phoenix


Cool Japan Festival

Last night I visited the biggest Japanese event of India called Cool Japan Festival. This bustling festival will be on today and tomorrow at The Courtyard, High Street Phoenix. The Cool Japanese Festival is an interesting amalgamation of over 25 Japanese companies coming together to provide the Indian audience a taste of their unique culture. You can buy authentic Japanese products and learn so much about them.

During the event, you will witness cultural performances like Wadaiko Drums (performed by a group named Tenka), Enka which is traditional Japanese songs sung by the famous Mr. Chadha, who is Japan’s first non-Japanese Enka singer, Anime fashion show, music and cosplay. Although I didn’t get a chance to watch Enka, I did catch a thrilling performance by Tenka.

I also got a glimpse of the Anime Fashion Show.


Sounds fun, right?

In addition to all this fun, they also have Washoku 5 – where you can try some great food too. Sushi & more has been roped in to serve a Japanese spread of sushi, yakitori and so much more.

What’s exciting is that all the traditional Japanese delicacies are sold for as cheap as Rs.100 per portion. This is a fantastic offer! The festival is on until tomorrow so head to Phoenix Mills and sample some great food.
