Doki Doki - The Manchester Japanese Festival is an event held in Manchester, UK, celebrating both traditional and modern Japanese culture.

The next festival will take place from 10:00am until 7:00pm on Saturday 12 November 2016 at Sugden Sports Centre. The festival will be followed by a cosplay after-party.

The last festival took place on Saturday 7 November 2015 and was a huge success, with over 2,800 people attending (a big increase from the 1,600 who attended the first festival in 2011) and £1000 raised for our supported charity. See our forum for photographs and videos of the 2015 festival.
