Japan Fest - Welcome's Asia Aim

Japan Fest initially set out to introduce Japanese culture to the UK, but in recognizing the richness of Asia, we had a lightbulb moment!  

Enter Japan Fest Welcomes Asia, an extension within the Japan Fest brand. It goes beyond Japan, seamlessly integrating Japanese stalls and cuisine with the diverse offerings from other Asian countries. Asia's varied cultures deserve to be celebrated just as much as Japan, and denying attendees the vibrant flavours and crafts from across the continent seemed counterintuitive to us. Therefore, the mission of Japan Fest Welcomes Asia is to blend these diverse cultures, offering attendees a rich taste of Asia, extending beyond the borders of Japan. Fear not however! Japan Fest, in its original form, remains, and Welcomes Asia serves as an exciting expansion of our commitment to cultural exploration.

Otaku World Derby

Otaku World is passionate team that envisions bringing all anime and Japanese enthusiast together under one roof. Our first steps in achieving this was the opening of our anime store in Derby, it has proved very successful. Our second step towards our goal was the introduction of our anime event, Otaku Link.


Otaku Link’s foundation is built upon the idea of giving anime fans a place to relax and enjoy everything anime has to offer. We are different then other conventions as we have constructed the event in a way that promotes social interaction. Otaku Link is better described as an anime club, where attendees are actively engaged in activities based around Anime thus creating long lasting friendships and an inclusive community. We are now taking the third step in our adventure by incorporating the vast array of other parts of Japanese culture, this brings us to Japan Fest.
