Organized on a space of more than 65 000 sqm, it is the event not to be missed by fans of mangas, video games and Japanese cuisine. The 19th edition of Japan Expo will be held from 5 to 8 July 2018 at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center. This year still reserves full of beautiful surprises with in particular as guest of honor the Buichi Terasawa mangaka.

Japan Expo, like every year, promises to exacerbate your senses, titillate your curiosity, tackle your taste buds and overcome any zygomatic breakdown.

More than 700 exhibitors, an entire part of Japanese culture. From culinary stands to archery courses (kyudo) and the traditional art of calligraphy. Colourful encounters, as much as the characters you meet and the people you guess under the cosplays.

Arcade terminals, traditional Japanese gastronomy stands where sushi masters reveal their know-how before your eyes. And for fans of this musical current, J-POP concerts take place everywhere on the site, accompanied by the fans who cover the lyrics in chorus. Manga, animated or RPG fans will gather around the much awaited cosplay parades to see their idols and heroes come to life.
