août 5 - août 6
Atsusacon is a weekend festival with the purpose of bringing Japanese pop culture to you. For our seventh edition we are once again occupying Ghent ICC and this year, we are not alone. This temporary banner teases the theme a bit, look out for the grand announcement.
Besides meeting up with like-minded people, you can also get to know everything Japan has to offer. The well-known stuff like anime, manga, cosplay and J-pop/K-pop is present in abundance, but traditional culture will also have a place. Our extensive programming will have lectures, workshops and all kinds of events. Of course, there will also be dealers.
Everyone is welcome! Those who are already fans of anime, manga and other Asian media, but also those who are curious about exotic Japanese culture. Meet many new people with similar interests and have some new experiences. And you will have all of this at our gorgeous location: the ICC in Ghent, with a beautiful park environment which lends itself very well to pictures!
