Hyper Japan London
Hyper Japan is a well known exhibition fair held ever year in London. The fair celebrates everything Japanese, from the traditional to ultra modern, all can found at the fair. The fair has become very popular and if you have a love or just a little interest in Japan, it’s well worth a visit. The next fair is to be held in the summer of 2014.
Hyper Japan shop
Hyper Japan has now opened it’s first shop as of the end of oktober 2013. Its located in the Camden stables market area in London. The shop, being its first, is a small shop. But content is growing. Since its a very new shop, I’m sure the stock will grow and try the market to see what sells. On our visit the shop had a lot of kawaii goods. A lot of stuff we had only seen in Japan or on the internet before, and rarely found in local shops around London. Some of the stuff we found was a collection of the J-pop princess Kyary Pamyu Pamyu – a mixture of her CDs, DVDs, t-shirts and more. We also found stuff from Tofu Cute, a selection of Japanse sweets, a selection plush alpacas (the ones you see all over Tokyo), t-shirts and bags too.
As you see, the shop has a good selection of products which I’m sure will improve even more as time goes by. Walking into the shop gives the feeling of walking in to a little Japanse shop in Tokyo, seeing all the goods available for ourchase. Nowadays when we are in London we jot from shop to shop, like Japan Centre, Art Box, China Town and now recently we have added the Hyper Japan shop to our list of some of the shops we will keep visiting in the future. If you are in London and love things from Japan, then this store is well worth visiting.
Finding the shop took us a little time at first, since we always seem to get lost around all the small shops in Camden. But after looking on a map we ended up finding it. Please check out the map and shop information below, and also check with their site for the up to date information on opining times and more.
