  • Japan Fiesta Returns This February at Glorietta
  • Travelers who seek the majestic sights, culinary wonders, and delightful pop culture of Japan are invited to the much-awaited return of Japan Fiesta this February 18 and 19, 2023 at the Glorietta Activity Center and Palm Drive Activity Center in Makati.

    With the goal to strengthen the friendship of Japan and the Philippines, the Japan Fiesta Council gathers major airlines and travel agencies that offer trips to the Land of the Rising Sun. Visitors can book their tickets, schedule their tours, and buy their travel essentials from the council’s partner airlines and agencies during the event. 

    Meanwhile, a festival of Japanese flavors can be celebrated at the food booths that offer visitors their all-time favorite Japanese snacks and beverages such as Pocky, takoyaki, gyoza, and Japanese beer among others. After having a snack, visitors may drop by the Festival (Omatsuri) Area that will feature various fun games and exciting activities for kids and children at heart.

    To further showcase the country’s rich and fascinating culture, the Japan Fiesta Council also invited Namahage Satokagura, Taiko Drummers, and a guest performer from Japan to celebrate the country’s unique heritage and traditions through music and performing arts.

    OtaCutE, on the other hand, will take Japan Fiesta visitors to the world of cosplay through various stage and booth activities.
