The Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair is one of the biggest entertainment events held in the Kansai region.
And it has now been confirmed that the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair will allow in-person attendance in mid-September this year. The announcement was made via the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair’s official website.
This year’s event will be held at the Miyako Messe Convention Center.
However, the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair usually makes use of different venues due to the various events that grace the show. Apart from the Miyako Messe Convention Center, this year’s event will also be held at the ROHM Theatre Kyoto, the Kyoto International Manga Museum, and the Toei Kyoto Studio Park from September 18-19.
Kyoto is among the four prefectures that are currently under a new state of emergency that is slated to lift on May 11 and the venues for this event are currently closed. We sure hope that there will be no further state of emergency as that will put a dent in the organizers’ plans.
The event organizers have stated that there will be strict health guidelines to be duly followed to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.
At the event, there will be traditional arts workshops, a character cafe, a cosplay area, a job fair, and the Kyoto International Manga Awards. Be sure to check which venue is hosting each event – or you can purchase joint tickets.
For adults, advance tickets cost ¥1,200. Tickets sold at the door cost ¥1,500. The event was free for foreign visitors but this year, one can show his or her non-Japanese passport and settle for a ¥200 discount off of the ticket price.
