This weekend is the 17th Annual Sakura-Con…the Northwest’s biggest anime / manga / all-things-Japanese convention. Who’s going?
I am! I have been to every Sakura-Con since 2008. It’s an amazing three day event that celebrates, well, all things Japanese…from anime viewings to manga give-aways to panels of experts and authors to Ikebana displays to kimono fittings to auditoriums of game playing. There’s a huge masquerade ball and even martial arts demos. Not to mention the ginormous Exhibit Hall of booths selling merchandise and the ever-popular Artist’s Alley.
It’s a fascinating weekend that celebrates the otaku in all of us.
Have you been? What did you think? We’d love to hear your thoughts of the event and see your pictures…especially if you cosplay! 😀
Ja ne! Hope to see you there!
