Akemi Solloway, the main organiser of the Japanese Art Festival, is a lecturer of Japanese culture and daughter of an old samurai family. It is her aim to present authentic Japanese culture in an accessible and enjoyable manner.

In the friendly atmosphere of this event, if you come alone or with a group, you will find like-minded people, interesting things to see and do and the chance to take part in further activities in the UK and Japan.

We have also applied to be included in the Cultural Olympiad, which is ongoing from Autumn 2008 until the actual Olympic Games in London in 2012.

We are also looking for volunteer stewards, so please email us via if you are interested.
