AnimeJapan is Japan’s largest anime event. The 2017 show happened in March at the Tokyo Big Site, the largest convention center in Tokyo. Over 140,000 attendees from around the world experienced all things anime for 4 days and cosplayers were there in force showing off their their talents and love of costumed play.
At the indoor cosplay area, backdrops were placed, where visitors could take photos on five different backgrounds including the AnimeJapan logo wal as well as more organic images.
An outdoor cosplay space in the parking area was available, allowing photo-shoots in an open environment. The area was crowded shoulder-to-shoulder not only by cosplayers but also by attendees with cameras.
This year was very crowded with various cosplayers both new and old coming together. Characters such as Your Name, Hell Girl, Love Live! Sunshine!!, ONE PIECE, Gintama, Fate/Grand Order, and Kemono Friends were all there.
With so many cosplayers representing years of popular anime, AnimeJapan is definitely an event you should be attending. Fan or a cosplayer alike, there’s lots to see and do, and in the concentions own words “Here is Everything About Anime.”
