South West Japan Festival

South West Japan Festival

14 August 2023 - 17 September 2023
Bunbury Regional Art Gallery
Celebrating the art, culture, food and history of Japan, here in the south west!

The South West Festival of Japan brings the music, culture, food and festivities of Japan to the cities of Bunbury, Busselton and Dunsborough.

The South West Festival of Japan began in 2018 as a way to celebrate the Sister Cities of Bunbury and Setagaya City.

Join us in celebrating everything Japan, from lantern festivals to cooking classes, anime and manga workshops to artist exhibitions, film festivals and the (highly anticipated!) annual stamp rally!
