San Japan is this weekend, July 31 – August 2, in San Antonio, Texas. In its 8th year, the theme this year is “San Japan: 8-Bit.” The event is hosted right on the San Antonio riverwalk, with plenty of restaurants, shopping, and nearby events.
With guests like Steve Blum, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, Team FourStar, and Yuka, as well as programming revolving around anime, manga, video games, cosplay, and Japanese fashion, attendees have a lot of events to choose from.
San Japan has been one of my all-time favorite conventions in previous years, and it’s sure to follow the trend this year. To follow along with our San Japan adventures live, follow my Instagram or Twitter. My plans include checking out some of the cosplay programming and hanging out with my Animal Crossing cosplay group. And keep your eyes peeled for a full review and report after the convention!
