It's that time of the year when the leaves are turning red, even in central London. So it must be time for the UK's premiere Japanese festival - Japan Matsuri.

This annual event provides the ideal opportunity to sample Japanese culture in its many forms.

From traditional crafts and martial arts, contemporary performances, alongside music and dance, there are, of course, always plenty of chances to sample Japanese food.

Photo opportunities with NHK World mascot Domo proved, unsurprisingly, popular this year!

See the opening ceremony with Mikoshi (palanquin or portable shrine) procession, Eisa and Bon Odori dancers and the Nodojiman karaoke contest.
