Japan Matsuri is the Japanese festival of the Italian speaking part of Switzerland.
With the word “Matsuri” (祭り, or just 祭), the Japanese people often refer to a festival that is held in public places such as Shintoist or Buddhist temples, a known area in the city or simply a school area.
Therefore, the choice for the name Japan Matsuri is inspired not only by Japanese culture, but also by the meaning of this term and the nature of the Festival.
During the two days of the festival, the visitors can dive into a far and fascinating world between tradition and modernity. In addition to the exhibition area, the entertainment area, workshops, videogames, exhibits and some nice Japanese cuisine, the festival offers interesting concerts and live shows.
