In 2015 Anime Matsuri launched the anticipated Hawaii event hosted at the Hawaii Convention Center. Here we will host a 3 day “matsuri”, Japanese for “festival”, full of many exciting panels, workshops, contests and events. We are proud to promote Japanese culture to our attendees with our cultural panels and workshops, Lolita Tea Party, Maid Cafe, Japanese style Car Show, Japanese Concerts, and the largest Japanese Fashion Show in the United States. Our vision is to have the convention serve as a bridge from the East and West and from Houston to Hawaii. We not only bring the excitement that is Japan, but we also try to educate the community on cultural diversity.
