If you don’t have enough pink in your life, this is the event for you. As well as featuring lots of that harajuku style that you’ve either come to love or hate, there will be copious amounts of live music – including a performance from the undisputed Queen of Kawaii, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.

If your Japanese isn’t up to the task, call the organizers on 03-3470-0140 to complain.
