Summer Comiket 2024

★ Staff recommendation
10:30am – 4:00pm
¥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.

Tickets 2024

Historically a free event, Comiket has now limited admission to paid ticket holders. There are a few ticket types to choose from with the most expensive being the Early Entry Ticket, which costs ¥5,000 and is sold via TicketPay (and a lottery system). The next most expensive ticket is the Cosplay Changing Room Early Entry Ticket, which is ¥3,000.

For entry in the morning, you will need an AM Entry ticket, which is ¥1,210. Entering after 1:30 p.m. will cost ¥1,000. We recommend getting your tickets in advance, as long lines are expected on the day.

Cosplaying at Comiket

For those planning to cosplay, you will also need a special cosplay ticket (¥3,000), which grants you access to changing rooms and includes entry all day. You can also choose to pay ¥500 to use the changing rooms without the entry ticket included.
