Arigato and thank you

June 20, 2022

A big thank you from the Wellington Japan Festival Trust to all the many people who helped make the 2022 event such a success. Some 20,000 people poured into the TSB Arena and the Japanese Food Hall in Shed Six on Saturday June 18 to enjoy all that the Festival had to offer.  

All of you -- stallholders, performers, volunteers, our co-organisers the Embassy of Japan and Wellington City Council, and our wonderful family of sponsors -- played your part in bringing a fabulous taste of Japanese culture to the capital. We'll be bringing you images of the festival very soon -- so watch this space!

Organised by the Japan Festival Wellington Trust with Japanese Embassy & Wellington City Council
