Summer Comiket

10:00am – 4:00pm
¥500 (on the door)

Comic Market, better known as Comiket, is a bi-annual comic market and one of Japan’s biggest comic-related events. As per usual, Summer Comiket will be happening at Tokyo Big Sight. For the first time ever, admission to Comiket will no longer be free in order to control crowd size (entry fees are 500 yen/day).

Different from some cons you may have visited in your lifetime, the focus of the event is dojinsha—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.

For those planning to cosplay, note there is a fee you have to pay (usually ¥800). 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.
