Hi, I'm a complete newb to the cosplay world but seeing as how i'm in japan and will be here for the next 2 months or so. I want to check out a BIG convention but don't know where or when.

Thanks for any info.

Try the Japan forum.

There are no BIG events until August/September. But there are events every single weekend, just about everywhere you could possibly imagine.

Japan is a big place... try being more specific.

preferably near nagoya or tokyo, kyoto, osaka, although i'm certainly open to just about anywhere in the island (honshu?)

The calender doesn't seem to accept event submissions from Japan :/ We've tried adding events to no avail. The only events listed there for the country are international events with English-language websites and support.

Try this instead:

Points are based on how well the venue is rated (in stars), how many cosplayers have attended the event in the past and how many are rsvped to attend it currently.

More points usually indicate larger events.
