The Melbourne Japanese Summer Festival returns to Docklands for the third year running this month.

The festival is traditionally known as “Natsu-Matsuri” and is a celebration held annually across Japan.

The Melbourne version of the event, held by the Japanese Society of Melbourne and the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, celebrates the Japanese community in Melbourne.

More than 13,000 people attended the festival last year and event organisers are expecting an even bigger turnout this year.

The festival will feature performances of traditional Japanese dance and Japanese martial arts demonstrations.

Visitors will also be treated to traditional Japanese music including taiko drumming, the Japanese flute, and the shamisen.

There will be plenty of Japanese food on offer along with shopping and games. A raffle will also be held with the winner taking home the major prize of two return tickets to Japan.

When: Sunday February 10 from 1pm until 5pm.

Where: New Quay Piazza
