Tokyo International Anime Fair 2009
Although we are not big fans of anime (actually, I hate to admit that I don’t really know much about it, so don’t ask), my son and I attended the Tokyo International Anime Fair 2009 in Odaiba, Tokyo, Japan, while my wife went shopping nearby (will blog about Odaiba at a future post).
It was held in the Tokyo Big Sight, with an admission of 1,000 yen (about US$10) for adults and 500 yen (US$5) for those under 18 – good thing my son brought his student id because they didn’t believe he was under 18 (he is very tall for a 13 year old).
Some 255 companies from Japan and overseas introduced their latest anime items at 759 booths, with attendance expected at 120,000 – yes, it was very crowded (and hot)!
There were lots of figures …
… some cute ones and not so cute ones.
You can also find lots of cute characters …
… and not so cute ones.
Finally, there were many people working in the booths dressed up in anime characters (don’t ask me who these characters are, no idea – but I do see a samurai though, so Japanese).
Do you like anime?
