Hello fellow anime lovers! Has anyone here ever been to the Anime Japan convention?? I heard it's really awesome, and I want to go really badly. Trouble is, I live, work, and attend college in the US. My luck turned recently, but I'll still be hard-pressed if I want to go.

My father is working in Japan and has offered to help with some of the airfare if I can cover the rest of the costs. We agreed that flying over just to go to the convention was a bit silly, and agreed on a week and a half time frame for the trip, so I'd also be able to go to Kyoto and Osaka, as well as see things like Nara Park and Himeji Castle. I'm hosting a GoFundMe to help out, since I'm still in college for my Mechanical Engineering degree and practically all my money goes towards tuition, books, and rent.

Anything would help.

Doumo arigatou gozaimasu!
Sincerely,
Jessica

P.S. Even if you can't donate, I'd love to hear from anyone who is from Japan, has visited, or even wants to go someday. It's totally my dream to go and any tips, destinations to visit, or just a chance to chat would be greatly appreciated. ^_^

am going at the end of march, hopefully to see the cherry blossoms




my mum said it's weird that i'm going there for the sole purpose of seeing some random flowers... when I could see those flowers in a garden somewhere in Sydney....

I've been to Japan three times. My advice is get out of Tokyo and see the rest of Japan. Fall is an awesome time to go.
