It’s a huge privilege to be able to support the Melbourne Japanese Summer Festival 2022 and help it continue each year. It is the largest Japanese festival in Melbourne and we want to make sure it continues to share Japan’s music, culture and food with as many Melburnians and Australia each year.


Melbourne Japanese Festival 2022 had their first festival in Melbourne during 2010. Since then the event has grown and attracted many people across Melbourne.

The Melbourne Japanese Festival 2022 is always searching for people who would like to help with the event.

Melbourne Japanese Festival 2022 will have lots of live performances such as Taiko Drumming, Martial Arts and Dance performances and also Okinawan Folk Music. The 2022 Melbourne Japanese Summer Festival will be broadcasted 100% online across Australia.

Many people also get dressed up in their traditional Yukata or even Cosplay costumes. It’s lots of fun for all the family!


Box Hill Japanese Festival 2020 (Japan Club of Victoria) is normally on during May in Box Hill.

Similar to the Melbourne Japanese Summer Festival, the Box Hill Japanese Festival provides many performances for Melbourne people. Recent Box Hill Japanese Festivals have included Japanese Taiko Drumming, Tradition Dance/Kendo/Karate/Shakuhachi, and Shamisen performances. There is also a choir performance and Karaoke Show which can be lots of fun to watch!
