Get down to Docklands to celebrate Japanese culture or 'Natsu-Matsuri', the traditional summer festival. Admire performances of traditional dance and martial arts, enjoy taiko drumming and hear traditional Japanese instruments like that shamisen, a Japanese guitar. There will also be plenty of delicious Japanese culinary specials including sushi, okonomiyaki (Japanese pancakes) and Bento-boxes.
