The Japan Matsuri returned to central London on Saturday 27th Sept, bringing Japanese food, music, dance, family activities and more to Trafalgar Square. I popped along and grabbed a few pictures of the action.

The all day festival was centred around the main stage in the square, with various performers taking a turn to impress the crowds, as well Radio Taiso exercise routines for people to join in with.
