Comiket 85 Convention in Tokyo

December manga event at Tokyo Big Sight building

By George Popescu    - 1 min read

On a very warm December weekend I descended upon the biggest anime and comic book convention in the world at the Tokyo Big Sight building in Odaiba, for the Comiket 85 event. There were many people dressed in different outfits and most of them were eager to pose for photos outside. People spent a lot of time and a lot of money at this event. I highly recommend this event for anyone who loves anime and manga and wants to see different characters being cosplayed. There is also great merchandise from retailers and private individuals selling their wares.

I was born in Bucharest, Romania and after a brief stay in London, England I settled and lived in Toronto, Canada for 20 years. I moved to Tokyo in late 2013 and have lived here ever since. I enjoy exploring the city with my camera as well as going to many special events that Tokyo has to offer every year. There are so many incredible things and places to see in this country and they all need to be enjoyed and documented as well as shared with the world.
