If you’re still longing for a holiday in Japan or just can’t get enough of the country’s unique pop culture, here’s something that might keep your wanderlust at bay.

From Sep. 2 to 25, 2022, HarbourFront Centre will be transformed into a world of cosplay where one can immerse in the pop culture of Japan and see cosplayers dress up as their favourite characters.

Coinciding with the September holidays, “World of Japan” will also feature special deals and discounts, and prizes to be won just by shopping at HarbourFront Centre.

Here’s what you can look forward to:

Singapore Cosplay Club Show

On Sep. 3 and 4, from 12pm to 7pm, HarbourFront Centre’s atrium will play host to the Singapore Cosplay Club Show, produced by the Singapore Cosplay Club.

Among the event highlights to look forward to are appearances by veteran international cosplayers Tomia, Olivie, Joo A, and Neneko, who will be interacting with attendees.

They will also be judging the show’s anime dance competition.

In addition, the show will be hosted by the ever-energetic Cheryl Rein.
