Home to more than 90 related businesses and studios, Nerima is known as one of the birthplaces of Japanese anime. The neighbourhood now celebrates this heritage with a free weekend programme featuring interactive workshops, pop-up shops and screenings of both classics and newer fare. Catch Sunao Katabuchi's excellent In This Corner of the World (2016) and other quality films over two days – once released, the full programme can be viewed here (in Japanese only, natch).
