The Saló del Manga de Barcelona is an international exhibition featuring, as always, the best and most representative pieces from the world of Anime, Manga, and Japanese culture in general.
For the second year running the Saló del Manga will take place in the Fira de Barcelona in Montjuïc and will be extended to include pavilions 1 and 2 to accommodate the expected turnout. The first pavilion will be dedicated to music and cosplay competitions and live music (cosplay is a Japanese cultural tradition based on dressing up as Anime and Manga characters). The other pavilion will host exhibitions and exhibitors, manga workshops, traditional Japanese games, conferences, master classes, round table discussions, a video game area, an area dedicated to oriental cuisine, and other activities.
The Salón del Manga is organised by FICOMIC with the support of the Barcelona City Council, the Japan Foundation and the Japanese Consulate in Barcelona.
