Are you a huge fan of anime and/or Japanese culture? Then head on down to Akiba Town, happening from the 4th to 6th of August at Marina Bay Sands Expo Hall Level 1. Come celebrate Japanese pop culture as anime fans and fan artists from all walks gather at one major convention.

Get the chance to snap a photo with your favourite local cosplayers – Yosuke Sora, BoiledCurry, Rithe, Drefan and Katy Kat – who will be all dressed up at Akiba Town on 5-6 August. Multiple photo-taking sessions will be carried out over the two days, and merchandise will be on sale too.

Not only that, you will also be treated to various fanworks by artists such as TRASHURE, Seaworks, Salt Aesthetic, Sarah Thursday, Paca Merch, and others. Expect prints, keychains, badges and stickers to be sold at the event, so prepare your wallets!

See anything that peaks your interest so far? Well, aside from cosplayers and fan artists, there will be a wide array of booths for you to visit too. Head on down to the official Pan-in-the-Box merchandise store or even try your luck at the Happy Ice ice-cream claw machine!

Come down as your favourite anime characters and keep your calendar free this 4-6 August!
