The Japanese Culture and Music festival is back! The music festival debuted in Macau in 2005, with the last show held in 2009. Many emerging Japanese musicians and band members visited Macau for the music and cultural exchange during the consecutive five year period. Now it’s back and bigger than ever. As well as music this year there will be a Gourmet Showcase, featuring eight booths to promote Japanese food, with Japanese desserts, packaged products, coffee, tea and other beverages on show. Aside from this, special offers and coupons will be provided by the merchants to encourage the general public to visit their shops.
The main highlight of the festival though is, of course, the band shows and cultural performances. During the weekend, Japanese and local bands will perform and create a festive vibe. Other Japanese cultural performances will also be presented to demonstrate Japanese cultural traditions. The lineup includes two full bands, a duo band, a solo folk band and bands from Macau. There will be cultural events such as Japanese cosplay characters, yukata (kimono) fitting, a shrine wish wall, Japanese calligraphy, a handcraft zone, and more.
