Tokyoplastic visit Hyper Japan!

Sam Lanyon Jones, half of iconic directing duo tokyoplastic agreed to come along to Hyper Japan Festival at the O2 to find out what it was all about:

 We found a Bonzai tree exhibit...

We found a 15ft giant model of the head of Titan from 'Attack on Titan' soon to be released as a live action film...

Sam chatted about about upcoming festivals in Hokkaido

 He introduced us to the world of Bubble Tea...strangely delicious and a little chewy!

We sampled authentic cuisine, a kind of omelette pickle lolly, and a sweet red bean pancake fish, made by a man in a fish hat, naturally.

We met some interesting people, including a fellow graphic novelist...

 Finished off by a spot of shopping for some beautiful comics and books...

We had a lovely afternoon out, thanks Sam!
