Japanese Culture Fest in Kenya Attracts Cosplay, Manga Enthusiasts

NAIROBI – Cosplayers showcased their homemade outfits at a runway competition that was held on Saturday as part of a Japanese Cultural Festival at the East Asian nation’s embassy in Kenya.

During the event at the Japan Information & Culture Centre (JICC), the cultural and public affairs section of the Embassy of Japan in Nairobi, Kenyans young and old participated in the cosplay (costume play) by dressing up as their favorite characters from sources that included anime and manga.

Among other activities, visitors to the festival also familiarized themselves with origami, the Japanese art of paper folding; and manga series such as Naruto, written and illustrated by 43-year-old artist Masashi Kishimoto.
