AnimeJapan

¥1,900 (advance sales)¥2,300 (on the door)

You may have gone to an anime convention back home. Why not go to one in the country that started it all? AnimeJapan has everything you’d expect: exhibitions, goods, special anime-business collaborations, and stage appearances and performances by some of the biggest names in the industry. This year will see parts of the festival going online. The main stage for the public days will be streamed live and the business market will only be online.

The event is split into two parts – the first and second days are public days while the third and fourth are ‘business days’ which is a good idea if you’re interested in the industry.

A note to cosplayers: like winter and summer Comiket, you have to pay a fee of around ¥1,000. BUT, you do get to enjoy access to a changing room and a luggage storage service that sweetens the deal.

Admission is free for children 12 years old and under (oh, the benefits of youth!). This year there is a Family Anime Festa with areas focused on children including meet and greets withpopular characters. Advance tickets cost ¥1,900 and on-the-day tickets cost ¥2,300 along with free entry for those under 12 (and their guardians to the Family zone). Tickets are also valid for one day only, so if you want to go both days you’ll have to cough up more cash.

This is scheduled to be the first Anime Japan since 2019 as the 2020 event was canceled due to COVID-19.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
