This year's Hyper Japan looks like a corker, with a slew of entertaining and diverse stage performances, a range of cultural demonstrations, displays of the latest Japanese tech, Cosplay fun and, of course, lots of Japanese food and drink to keep you energised while you're there.

And if all that wasn't enough, there'll be heaps of Japanese goodies for sale, with the Asian nation's pop culture represented in abundance.

Should you get utterly swept up in the excitement of it all and you probably will representatives from Japan Travel will be on hand to talk you through the various travel packages they have on offer, from trips to one of the liveliest cities in the world Tokyo to more sedate stays in Japan's ancient capital, Kyoto. If you have the funds and the time, you can easily visit both places in one trip by hopping aboard one of its super-modern bullet trains. Anyway, back to Hyper Japan....
