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....
For a full rundown on what's taking place at this year's event, check out the festival's comprehensive listings page here. Tickets cost between £8 and £16, while children 10 and under can enter for free.
To avoid disappointment, the advice is to book tickets as soon as you can – this is now the UK's biggest celebration of Japanese culture and cuisine, so they're likely to get snapped up fast.
