Last February (I know, this post is soooo late :p), I attended the Japan Habba 2014 held her in Bangalore. It was their second year of organising this event. I spent half of my day taking a glimpse of the Japanese culture through Daruma, Ikebana, Manga, Origami, though I missed the Kimono trials, aikido, kathak, and Hiragana writing tutorials. And also, I missed the Japanese food served in the food court, there was only one food stall that served Japanese food and when I arrived, the food was over and they were only serving lime soda, so I didn’t have any choice but to suffice with the hakka noodles. Anyways, I was busy admiring the Manga costumes worn by many participants, and I thoroughly enjoy clicking pictures of them as they get into their character.

The Japan Habba was a showcase of the Indo – Japan cultural exchange, and oh, boy, there was truly an exchange of cultures as the Japanese participants danced to Bollywood songs and Indian participants sang Japanese songs. It was a half-day well spent and unlike other events I attended, this one I have no regrets even though it was miiiileeeees away from my place. Looking forward for next Japan Habba, hopefully next time there will be lots of Japanese food 🙂

Here are some of the snaps from Japan Habba 2014:
