The first ever Culture Japan Convention (CJC) 2013 comes to Penang this year, aiming to bring fans and celebrities of the Japanese pop culture industry closer together as a community over an exciting weekend of activities and showcases.

Following the concept of Culture Japan Night (CJN), a quarterly event hosted in various countries by blogger and TV presenter Danny Choo, CJC will attempt to break barriers between fans, celebrities, and retailers. Fans can look forward to a relaxed environment where they can interact freely with cosplayers, illustrators, retailers, card gamers, and guests from Japan and around the world.

Wow, look at the droves of people at the entrance! Mostly are youth, a different facets of Malaysian youth. Are we “otaku” too?

To end here, it is a fun event and we had a good time.

It’s a very good initiative that this event was brought to Malaysia, and held at Penang instead of Kuala Lumpur like most events.

I think the only disappointing part would be the lack of Japanese food, we hope the organizer could include more variety of Japanese food for future events.

Nevertheless, I think they did a great job in organizing an event as such. 🙂
