Are you interested in Japanese anime culture? If you aren’t, you might want to consider it just for this weekend, when you get a unique opportunity to learn more about it at the Festival of Japanese Culture and Animation.

Japanese anime, or animations of a peculiar style that feature large doe-eyed characters, will be screening day and night this weekend. Real people dressed up in spectacular anime-style costumes will also perform at the fest.

Visitors will get a chance to transform into many of the characters and take part in a fancy parade of anime fans, who will march through the center of Kyiv to show what anime culture looks like.

There will also be master classes available for those who would like to learn the art of bringing Japanese cartoons to life, as well as acting and photography. A lot of anime-themed photos and merchandise will be available for sale.
