What to Look out for:
This is the perfect time for attendees to obtain new information about your favorite consoles, video games, movies and more. If you strike while the iron is hot, you may even get yourself a meet and greet with some of your favorites in the industry. If not, don’t fear, there are many other cool activities in store. The venue will be littered with rare pop-culture objects and artifacts for you to fangirl over. There’s almost too much to do.
The Tokyo Comic Convention is a sister event of the original Silicon Valley Convention founded by Stan Lee, the creator of Spider-Man, and Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple. The convention had its first installment in 2016 which attracted 30,000 attendees, a large amount for a grand opening. The next year, that number would go up to 40,000. By 2018, the Tokyo Comic Convention amassed almost 65,000 visitors, proving it only gets better with age. This year is bound to cause quite a stir with its celebrity guests of Rupert Grint, Zachary Levi, Sebastian Stan and Orlando Bloom. And that’s still tentative! There’s more to be announced.
Advanced bookings may be required for the meet-and-greets. Tickets for autographs and photoshoots are sold separately. Please check the website for the full details.
