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. To top it all off, there is a special Business Area open the two weekdays before the main event. Those interested in the anime industry should think about registering for this separate but great opportunity.

A note to cosplayers: like winter and summer Comiket, you have to pay a fee (1,000 yen). 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!). Tickets are also valid for one day only, so if you want to go both days you’ll have to cough up more cash.
