Waku Waku + NYC: A Brooklyn-Based Celebration of Japanese Culture

August 26, 2016 - August 31, 2016

Brooklyn hosts dozens of colorful ethnic and cultural festivals every summer. 2015 saw the addition of Waku Waku + NYC, a Japanese Pop Culture Festival open only to adults. The two-day festival celebrates anime, fashion, film, Japanese cuisine, J-pop, and manga. The inaugural Waku Waku + NYC Festival was a success, and the second annual festival is highly anticipated by planners and attendees alike. You’ll definitely want to consider attending if you’re fascinated by Japanese culture and will be in Brooklyn at the end of August.

Book here to stay with NU Hotel during Waku Waku + NYC. For more information about the inaugural event, specific dates and to purchase tickets, visit the festival’s website.
