About

Experience Japan
Experience Japan is a series of events designed to celebrate Japanese culture and the Japanese community in Ireland. Our events promote integration and cultural understanding between all communities.The centrepiece of Experience Japan is a ‘Hanami’ festival day where families and friends come together to enjoy free music and dance performances, along with demonstrations of Japanese culture. ‘Hanami’ is the traditional Japanese custom of viewing flowers, especially cherry blossom, to mark the arrival of spring.

Experience Japan is a community event entirely organised and run by volunteers. To find out more about the EJ committee, click here.
