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.
Historically a free event, Comiket has now limited admission to paid ticket holders. Ticket prices for 2023 are yet to be released but had different accessible areas — this will be abolished this year, but ticket prices will vary depending on the time you enter.
Tickets for 2022 started at around ¥1,000. They will also announce how to buy tickets for those currently outside of Japan at a later date.
Cosplaying at Comiket
For those planning to cosplay, you will also need a special cosplay ticket (¥3,500 in 2022). This grants you access to changing rooms.
The closest stations are Kokusai-Tenjijo-Seimon Station on the Yurikamome Line and Kokusai-Tenjijo Station on the JR Rinkai Line.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
