Japan is not only famous for the rich culture and history, but also for subcultures such as manga, anime, and computer games and so on. The event venue is in Kyoto International Manga Museum where is located in the center of Kyoto. They stock more than 300,000 manga, magazines and their historical records from Meiji Era (about 1870 - 1910) to the recent years in different languages.

In Kyoto International Manga Museum, there is a cosplay event called “COSJOY” twice or three times every month and you can wear the costumes of your favorite characters from manga, anime and games etc. (please prepare your own costume as there is no costume rental service in Kyoto International Manga Museum). There are many foreign guests joining this event nowadays, so please feel free to visit there!
