Moshi Moshi Nippon was a festival I wasn’t able to attend this year sadly…but hopefully next year I’ll find a way. This was recently brought to my attention from a few readers of this blog. It’s a festival that has a goal to “spread Japanese pop culture to overseas. It will be a project to create ‘fashion, music, anime, and food’ from new perspectives so that people overseas will become fans of Japan.”
This sounds amazing already but what makes it better? Foreigners get in for free and get their own designated area!! Of course you have to prove you’re not from Japan. It took place on Sunday, September 28, 2014, (yesterday in Japan.) The fest had tons of famous performers such as: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, TEMPURA KIDZ, Cupitron, Silent Siren, Akira, and more! There were plenty of popular models like Ayumi Seto and POCHI. Guest speakers such as the creator of 6% DOKI DOKI Sebastian Masuda was there too.
The Nippon stage was where the musicians performed. The Matsuri area was where the delicious Japanese food was served along with the dozens of street performers and models that were there to greet you, like the lovely German model Himezawa. There were many booth areas that covered all aspects of Japanese culture, especially from fashion to beauty. Some of the booths that were there were KERA magazine, Zipper magazine, and Harajuku Kawaii.
Since the event has just ended there aren’t many photos up. Watch this space for more photos and information. In the meantime, you check out their facebook and twitter for updates about this year and hopefully next years Moshi Moshi Nippon.
Doesn’t this place seem like heaven on earth for Japanese culture fans?? If you were able to attend this event please let me know so i can post your review. I’d love to hear stories.
