Matsuri Festival In Beirut
The first Japanese festival is coming to Beirut this May 1st!

This date falls in the middle of the "Golden Week" period in Japan, which contains several holidays like The Emperor's Birthday, Showa day, Children's day, Constitution Memorial day, and so on. The first week of May is also the end of the Cherry Blossom season. This is a period in time which represents the ephemeral nature of life and a time in Japanese culture that is traditional and contains rituals of peace.


Engage and enjoy the festivities:
-Calligraphy Art
-Origami Making
-Manga Drawing
-Ayatori Making (string figures)
-Tea Ritual

We're hosting two competitions, judge comments and prize distributions in the movie theatre for a unique entertainment experience:
-Karaoke Competition (Japanese songs)!
-Cosplay Competition (Costume acts)!

The show topper:
2 bands will be shaking up Bliss street in an epic outdoor rock show, performing your favorite Anime songs from sunset to night.

Side notes:
-Keep an eye out for Geishas.
