If you are clueless about what Taylor's Asaban Festival is all about, read through the intro below extracted from The Official Taylor's Asaban Website.
What is Taylor's Asaban Festival ?
Taylor's Asaban Festival (TAF in short) is an annual event since year 2009 organized by Taylors Anime Society to celebrate the diversity of modern J-Visual Culture and tradisional Japanese culture. Like it’s namesake, this event is split into our signature two sessions -- Asa (day) and Ban (night), which is designed to cater to both Anime, Comics, Games (ACG) lovers and Japanese culture fans alike.
Apart from that, Taylor’s Asaban Festival also acts as a platform for all participants to gain new experiences in terms of contacts, skills and most importantly provide a medium through which people from all walks of life can meet and share their love for all things Japanese, from the popular sub-culture of Anime, Comics and Games (ACG) during our Asa (day) session to food and tradition during our Ban(night) matsuri (Japanese festival).
In addition to all the unique experience, Taylor's Asaban Festival gives back to the community. This year, we are inviting people from the homes for the destitute old women, and orphans to experience this event. We are also giving a majority of all our profits earned to our beneficiary, Grace Community Services. We believe that this awesome experience should also be shared with the less fortunate.
There is just too much in-stored for you. Check out the activities lined-up for the day!
