The Kyoto International Manga Anima Fair (also known as KYOMAF) is a mid-scale event to promote the anime and manga industry. Unlike some other similar events in Japan, this one is more business-orientated with individual booths from companies in the broadcasting, publishing, and educational industries hoping in search of the next generation of talent. It’s not all serious, however: there is also a gallery cafe, workshops, speciality goods on sale, and the obligatory cosplay photo area.
The main venue is Miyakomesse (Kyoto City Convention Complex) but Kyoto International Manga Museum also holds related promotional events. On the day tickets ¥1,500 to Miyakomesse (¥1,200 in advance), and ¥800 (with discounts for juniors) to the Kyoto International Manga Museum. The main event runs from 9am to 5pm on Saturday and until 4pm on the Sunday.
