Since its launch in France 14 years ago, Japan Expo has become one of the world’s largest celebrations of Japanese culture and entertainment. Japan Expo blends the very best of Japanese traditional culture with modern Pop sensations.
Come experience the bridge to Japan, where you can see the best and hottest items and content being produced. Come by the JFC booth, the importers of Pocky, to taste the best snacks of Japan or maybe get a sneak peek at the newest anime shows such as Eva: 3.0 from the work of our Guest of Honor Yoshiyuki Sadamoto!
You'll have the chance to attend more programming than you could possibly fit into one weekend. We have many Japanese and American guests from the Japanese entertainment and American Animation industries. Each guest will be doing autograph sessions so you have a chance to meet your favorite! If music is more your taste, come see any of our amazing musical acts from Japan, such as Dempagumi. We will have great concerts each day of the festival covering everything from Pop to Koto. If traditional Japan interests you, stop by our cultural stage for Awa Odori dancers, from the largest dance festival in Japan, or maybe spend some time at our martial arts area to watch the karate demonstrations.
