Even if the films do not interest you much, there is plenty to do and see at a Camera Japan festival. Though the focus is primarily on cinema, any exhibitions on Japanese culture are welcome here. There are always plenty of shopping stalls, live performances, lectures, expositions and workshops about Japanese culture as well.
This picture shows last year's market (picture courtesy of Camera Japan). Every year I end up buying more stuff than I anticipate, be it wasabi cheetos, rare DVDs, sake, books about anime, cooking knives, or green tea-flavored Kit-Kats...
Check out the festival's events webpage for more information (this is the link).
