Have you ever had the chance to come across Naruto, Piccolo, or Sailor Moon at the corner of an alley? Never?! Then, Japan Expo is a dream opportunity to get surrounded by your favorite heroes!

On the Ichigo stage


Whether you want to be part of it or attend the shows as a mere viewer, the most breathtaking cosplay contests are awaiting you!

With the European Cosplay Gathering, the Ichigo stage is welcoming the best of European cosplay. The entrants representing 13 European countries perform on stage for the finals to win this big contest. An amazing show that many attendees attend every year! Japan Expo also hosts the European Cosplay Gathering French selections which are the beginning of every new ECG season.

With one cosplay show per day, the Ichigo stage also hosts two Cosplay Shows, so that the attendees can enjoy great cosplay everyday, admire their outstanding costumes, and get stunned at their performances. 

In the alleys and the Kitsune stage


Cosplay is also an amateur hobby and everyone can cosplay if they wish so, and stroll along the illuminated and colored alleys of the festival, to allow all the attendees to enjoy this happy celebration where all kinds of characters get together.

And they also have a dedicated stage: the Kitsune stage, the kingdom of free cosplay! You can come on stage in your costume and parade if you like and as you like. No stress, no competition, it’s all about fun.

Come join the cosplay phenomenon!
