Produced by Milagros Kuga, a Japanese/Peruvian jewellery artist based in Leamington, the event will include workshops, exhibitions and performances and authentic food and drinks.

Milagros said: "Some of my ancestors are Japanese and, after spending several years of living in Japan, I have developed a strong passion for its culture, art and food.

"This inspired me to create this event and I want to share it with the community and allow any local businesses who have a connection with Japan to showcase their products and art."
