The Moshi Moshi Nippon Festival is an annual festival showcasing “Cool Japan,” or Japanese pop culture via fashion, reinvented traditional arts, technology, and music. The event is free for foreigners but costs about 3,000¥ for Japanese, so there are perks for being a foreigner in Japan. My pop culture teacher encouraged us to go, but I would have totally gone even if I didn’t take that class.
The event took place for two days at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium near Roppongi. There were a lot of booths giving away free things so I really enjoyed it despite the overt consumerism and advertising. I got to meet interesting people and take cool photos while attempting to practice Japanese, so I had a good time.
These people really wanted me to take a picture here. He felt bad that I was all alone so he nicely took the picture with me. Once you upload the photo to social media, they give you a print out of your picture.
Overall I had a good time at this event and since it was free, it made it even better!
