Jump Festa, an anime and manga mega event, takes place at Makuhari Messe every year. It is one of Japan’s top pop culture events.
What is there to see and do?
Jump Festa is a yearly two-day expo that has taken place every December since 1999. The event introduces new manga, anime, films, games, and merchandise relating to titles and characters (think One Piece, Dragon Ball, Naruto, Slam Dunk, Bleach, and many more) that are featured in the line of Jump magazines (Weekly Shonen Jump, Jump SQ, Young Jump, Ultra Jump) published by Shueisha.
They also hold a Jump Super Stage, which hosts panels with creators, artists, and voice actors.
Although entry to this event is free, you will need to register to enter. At the moment only afternoon admission tickets (entry from 12:30) are available. It is recommended that you register on the Jump NAVI app at 10 a.m. on December 11. Find out more here.
Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
