Get Ready for Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair 2015

Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair aka Kyomafu is an annual event which provides information about and experiences in Japanese manga/anime culture.

As for the past three years, the main event will be held at Miyako Messe, and there are some sub-events at Kyoto International Manga Museum as well.

Although this event leans toward businesses, Kyomafu also has the intention of sharing Japanese pop culture with foreign tourists. This creates a wonderful opportunity for foreign visitors. While Japanese people must pay 1200 yen to get in, foreign tourists can enter for FREE. Note that showing a passport is required to receive this benefit. At this time, it is unclear if foreign visitors can have the same benefits at the International Manga Museum venue or not.

For those who love Japanese manga/anime, it is wise to schedule a trip to this event, which will be held on September 19th and 20th.

Information on the exhibition has not been provided on the official website.

In addition, for people who plan to attend this event, Kyotomafu is planning to have international students in Kyoto to handle PR.
