Japan Expo welcomes dozens famous artists: mangaka, animators, chara-designers, illustrators, video game creators, producers, musicians, singers, composers…: many of them take the trip all the way from Japan to attend the festival.

And as music has been part of Japanese culture since ancient times, traditional artists also come perform shamisen, koto, sanshin and many more enchanting traditional instruments.
