See how easy it is to slot a taste of everyday Japan into the Australian lifestyle, and make it more multicultural than ever before – get set to begin your Japanese staycation in 3…2…1…




Experience the Japanese festival spirit in the Harbour City!

In December every year, Matsuri in Sydney comes to life with the sound of taiko and the sizzle of Japanese street food stalls. Just like any great Japanese summer festival, local community support for the festival is strong, and it features a long list of stage performances and workshops that showcase traditional and modern Japanese food, culture, fashion, music, dance and martial arts.

While connecting with Japan’s unique culture, Matsuri in Sydney is also a great place to find out more about its diverse variety of travel destinations, and discover where you can experience more of Japan in Sydney. And if you have a yukata kimono, this is the place to wear it!
