Super Japan Matsuri is part of the Esplanade’s new cultural festival - Super Japan - that shines the spotlight on the Land of the Rising Sun, with a 10-day showcase that immerses the audience in the arts, cultures and traditions unique to Japan. Ranging from the traditional to the contemporary, the popular to the progressive, as well as special collaborations between Singapore and Japanese artists, the programmes highlight the multitude of expressions that make this country so culturally diverse and fascinating at every turn.
