We're dedicated to educating and entertaining the Greater Kansas City Metro Area through an introduction to Japanese culture.

The Japan Festival is a one-day event held annually at Johnson County Community College.

The Festival showcases the traditional culture, pop culture, food, and art of Japan, along with the vision, technology, and hopes for the future shared by the people of Japan and the people of the Kansas City area.

It features Japanese musical performances, traditional Japanese foods, a Japanese candy artist, Japanese snacks and sweets, a Bazaar shopping extravaganza, exhibits, Japanese cultural village for kids, martial arts, anime and manga, workshops, demonstrations, cultural presentations, and more!

The Japan Festival is presented by the Heart of America Japan-America Society. Since 1962, the Heart of America Japan-America Society (HAJAS) has made it our mission “To further the understanding between the peoples of Japan and the Greater Kansas City area by promoting social, cultural, and educational exchanges.”

Student (14-18+) tickets are intended for high school and college students. Please have students bring their school ID (or another form of ID) to present at the Box Office with their ticket.
