About the Japan Expo 2017 in Paris
For this 18th impact, the Japan expo is getting ready to pay tribute to 100 years of Japanese animation. The convention will showcase 100 anime from the 100 past years, among which 80th have been selected by the Show’s team and an experts’ committee and 20 were voted by the fans online, thus allowing them to participate in the creation of the Japanese animation’s centennial in Paris!
Internationally renown guests will do the trip from Japan to meet their fans and present their work during conferences and signing sessions such as Kenji Kamiyama (director of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex), Masao Maruyama (Death Note, Sakura et Nana) ou encore Takuya Wada (Cat’s eyes, Cobra).
Beyond that theme, it’s 125 000 sqm dedicated to manga, anime, cosplay, traditional arts, music, fashion, video games, conferences, signing sessions, contests, sports and around 700 exhibitors staying in Paris for a moment to share between Japanese pop culture lovers!
