Be part of our Hutt Japan Day 2017

The Hutt Japan Day has been set for Sunday 19th November 2017,  at the Dowse Art Museum and Square, 45 Laings Road, Lower Hutt.  

This will be a mini-festival to celebrate Japanese culture, language, arts, food, sports, businesses and activities in Lower Hutt and promote our sister city of Minoh, Osaka.

Due to limited space, organisations, food trucks/stalls and clubs must register their interest by Thursday 7th September 2017.



Expression of Interest FORM

If you are interested in being involved in Hutt Japan Day, as a performer, food truck or stall, please register your interest by Thu 7th September 2017.  There is limited space, so we will take registrations on a first come, first served basis.


Food Truck Festival

Street food is very much part of Japanese matsuri (festival). We would like to have a Japanese-themed food truck festival in the Dowse square, where some power outlets will be available. At least one food item should embrace the theme!


JApanese Culture

At Hutt Japan Day, we would like to showcase Japanese performances, dance, music, cultural activities, tea ceremonies & martial arts displays. The festival will run from 11am to 3pm on the day so there are limited places available. Please register to secure a place for your group.
