AniMatsuri is a festival for those interested in the Japanese culture. The emphasis is on the Japanese pop culture - anime, manga (Japanese comic), music, video games, fashion, etc. This is a two-day festival organized and run by volunteers with the goal to bring together Japanese culture enthusiasts from Estonia, its neighbors, and even farther. During this weekend the visitors can listen to presentations, take part in various workshops, witness or even participate in multiple competitions and most important, interact with other culture enthusiasts. The organizers are all fans of the Japanese culture and want to provide a safe and cozy place for others like them, be they just started anime fans or serious japanophiles. While the event is mainly aimed at teens, even adults will have something to enjoy in the programme. The goal of AniMatsuri is to provide entertainment and fun activities to the awesome community without whom the festival would not be happening.
And as two days are clearly not enough to introduce the Japanese culture, a new festival has emerged in the past few years - Japan Month. For four weeks in September and October we organize interesting events in Tartu and Tallinn for Japanese culture enthusiasts of all ages. There will be presentations, workshops, movie nights, video game and board game evenings, demonstrations and concerts.
