Who are we
«Higan» was the first festival that managed to unite all fans of modern East Asian culture, living in Belarus.
Translated from Japanese «Higan» means “equinox”, the astronomical change of two seasons (summer and autumn), and allegorically – the change of traditional and modern cultures.
The concept of the festival is to give young people the opportunity to realize themselves and develop their creative potential. During the festival there are events aimed at a deeper acquaintance of the viewer with the modern (popular) culture of Japan. During the 10 years of its existence, the annual festival of Belarusian fans of anime and modern East Asian culture «Higan» has become a serious public event, which requires from the organizers a responsible approach and profound professional knowledge.
