Visit the Japanese Christmas Market at Tobacco Dock for painting, cocktails and sushi

Fancy something a little different to the traditional Christmas market?

Head to Tobacco Dock and see how they do Christmas in Japan!

It’s a huge setup – even bigger than last year’s – with cosplay events, art tables, family activity stages around the venue hosting all manner of performances throughout the event.

This year’s event will also play host to the Sake Cocktail Awards and the Kids Sushi Master Competition.

One of the most interesting look areas of the even is the Japanese “Kokeshi” Dolls painting, where you can design your own doll to take home.


The dolls were originally sold as souvenirs to travellers visiting hot springs in the North-East of the country, so make a perfect Christmas gift!

Make sure to book tickets online now, before they sell out.

Hyper Japan will run from 25 to 27 November at Tobacco Dock, London.

You bring the rum, I'll bring the raspberries. Perfect daiquiris all round.
