Event: Indonesia Japan Expo 2008 (1st – 9th November)

Just returned from a short trip to Jakarta for the Indonesia Japan Expo 2008 www.indonesiajapanexpo.com Programs include fan art demo, cosplay competitions, J-rock Band performances, workshops for origami (Japanese paper folding), Ikebana (Japanese style flower arrangement) demo, Batik (Traditional Indonesian cloth) painting, etc. I enjoyed a pretty cool 3D show of the Shinkansen (新幹線) at the event but missed out the ghost house tho… there wasn’t enough time.


If you’re interested to find out about where to obtain original anime/BL goods in Indonesia, do pop-by this booth in Hall A to find out more. I bought 2 clear files from the booth. One of them is an out-of-print Junjou Romantica file and the other one is from Tsubasa Chronicle. Will post pics later XD

Besides publishing a free magazine on anime/manga/goods and Japanese culture kohaku-mag.com, they also feature an Indonesian online store 8orenji.com that carries only original goods, magazines, figures and doujinshi not easily available in Indonesia. Check it out too. Spend money wisely. Say “no” to bootlegs and buy original! ^^)b
