Comiket is celebrated 2 times a year on August and December.
In Japan summer is really humid and hot.

Some days Japan reaches 40 degrees! So don’t forget to use sun protection, a hat and comfortable clothes.

Last summer in Japan a lot of people suffered heat stroke.
Take care of your condition and drink water!
In this season we have many rainy days so we recommend to get a rain wear.

How to get to Comiket

Comiket is celebrated in Tokyo Kokusai Tenjijo.
Tokyo transportation is convenient and signs are supported in many languages so it’s difficult to get lost here.
I would like to recommend you some routes to go to Kokusai Tenjijo.

By JR Train

Shimbashi Yurikamome Station

First, get your SUICA.
You can buy it at any station.

Go to Shinbashi st. by JR Yamanote Line and there change train to Yurikamome line.
You can get good views from Yurikamome train.
Prepare your camera because you can take good pictures of Tokyo Bay from this train.

Yurikamome website : http://www.yurikamome.co.jp/(Multilanguage support)

(Multilanguage support website)
You will spend around 20min from Shimbashi st. to Kokusai Tenjijo.

When you arrive to Kokusai Tenjijo just follow people.
Anyway there are a lot of signs so you won’t get lost.

Big Sight architecture is unique so we recommend to take some pictures of it.
Japanese are kind and friendly people so if you ask to take a picture they will do.

By bus

JR TOKYO STATION - BUS STATION at YAEZU Gate


You can get to Comiket by bus from Tokyo st. for only 210 yen.
It spends around 15 min to get our destination.

The bus stop is difficult to find so if you are able to find it you’ll become a “Comiket Master” XD.

Bus stop is located in Tokyo st. Yaesu exit.
Don’t forget to take a look to the map!

Comiket rules

RULE OF HEICHYOU

Comiket is a free entrance event but it is also a limited space for other things so we would like to give you some points to consider before enter to Comiket.

What should I set before go to Comiket?

In Tokyo you can find convience store at any place but close to Comiket you won’t find it.
It is because no so much people live around this area.
So, you should prepare before go to the event.

Examples)

  • Money(Small change, coins, 1000 yen・1000 bill)
  • Tea, water, energy drink(There is no so many place where buy drinks inside the event)
  • Snacks
  • Sneaker
  • Eco bag
  • Hat
  • Rain Wear

We recommend to bring 1000 yen bill with you, so you will avoid any problems at pay articles, food, etc there.
We also recommend to prepare some food before go to the event because it can become difficult to get some food at Comiket.
In my case I recommend to get high calory Pan so you can get full energy for all day.
It‘s possible you get a lot of weight at the end of day!
Don‘t forget to bring your rain wear in case of rain (don´t forget to check weather forecast before go out home)

Have a good attitude at the place

We understand that you want to get a lot of things and maybe you will feel frustrated because there will be a lot of people doing line at any place but try to stay calm and remember that you are not alone there.

It is prohibited to run inside the building.

Almost exhibitors will be Japanese.
I think we need more knowledge about English but if you use easy English they will understand you.
Important thing is “heart”.

Schedule and Genre

If you go and you don´t like it try to enjoy watching exhibitors that fit to you.
