Summer Comiket

¥1,000 – ¥5,000

Comic Market, better known as Comiket, is one of Japan’s biggest annual pop culture events. It’s held twice per year, in summer and winter, at Tokyo Big Sight. The focus of the event is doujinshi — independently created and published manga. Given the thousands of amateur and professional manga artists in Japan, there will be an incredibly wide range of genres and styles for you to buy.

Summer Comiket 2022

Historically a free event, Comiket has now limited admission to paid ticket holders to keep numbers down due to the pandemic. Tickets vary depending on time and will have different accessible areas. Tickets with entry from the afternoon start are ¥1,000, for morning they are ¥2,000, and for early entry they are ¥5,000. Ticket information on their website.

Cosplaying at Comiket

For those planning to cosplay, you will need a special cosplay ticket (¥3,500 in 2022). Also, organizers advise that attendees should be ‘in good health when visiting Comiket and make sure to dress accordingly’. Considering the hordes of people and Tokyo’s oh-so-hot summers, this is advice worth taking.

The closest stations are Kokusai-Tenjijo-Seimon Station on the Yurikamome Line and Kokusai-Tenjijo Station on the JR Rinkai Line.

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