The Japan lovers date is back at Eurexpo. 30,000 m² dedicated to Asian culture on November 27 and 28, through an archipelago of stands and events.

The highlights of the Asian Show? Culinary specialties, of course, with the Asian Kitchen event (21 Asian restaurants and bars which make it the largest Asian food court in France) but also a host of activities. This year, focus on martial arts for which a giant space is dedicated: tatami mats, martial arts museum, sumo area, reconstruction of a dojo and two Japanese and Korean feudal camps with archery, drums, calligraphy and saber.

On the Japan Touch side, Japanese culture will be showcased through activities for the whole family. Mangas, video games and cosplay contests for some, meeting with anime stars for others (actress Stéphane Excoffier dubbing the famous Monkey D Luffy in the anime One Piece, or Bruno Méyère, who plays Livaï in the attack of the Titans). Not to be missed for Kpop fans: the first Kpop Dance Battle. Open to all enthusiasts, this first edition will allow eight groups to compete face to face. During this time, the more daring can learn Shibari, aka the art of Japanese bondage.

Art will not be left out. Many artists will be present to exhibit their work, including the painter Mary Hedonis and her exhibition Samurai and Kimonos or the photographic chronicles of Japanese living in France.

Finally, Burma will be the guest of honor at the Asia Show ?? a particularly surprising choice given the political situation in this country.
