On Sunday 28 May, it is once again time for the Japan Market on the Rapenburg in Leiden, organised by Japan Museum SieboldHuis. From 12.00 to 17.00 it is possible to walk around the market where a diversity of stalls with a connection to Japanese culture can be found. This ranges from traditional aspects such as ikebana, kimono, and bonsai to modern aspects such as manga, anime, and cosplay.
Every year, Japan Museum SieboldHuis organises the Japan Market to commemorate the Japanese Emperor’s visit to Japan Museum SieboldHuis and the Rapenburg on 25 May 2000. The Japan Market is free to visit. Especially if the weather is pleasant, the Japan Market is a great way to spend a few hours learning about Japanese culture in addition to exploring the city of Leiden itself.
Currently the exhibition Japanese Fables by the Miedema Brothers is on display at SieboldHuis. For Japanmuseum SieboldHuis, the artists delved into the world of Japanese tales and depicted twenty well-known and lesser-known Japanese stories in their own way. There are also various activities at Hortus Botanicus and Rijksmuseum van Oudheden. Please note that to visit the exhibitions in the museum and botanical garden, you need to buy a ticket.
All information about the Japan Market 2023 in Leiden can be found on the official website of Japanmuseum SieboldHuis.
