Want to know if there is a con near you in Japan?

Don't know if you guys knew this URL, but let me just post it for those who don't

ケットコム
http://ketto.com

This site lists MANY cons, both major and minor that takes place in Japan.

Things to note are that some are "only"s which is limited to a specific series (ie. Inuyasha Only Events).
Some prohibit cosplay, or has a rule to it.
Some (esp. minor genres) are small with 25 amature dojinshi booths, so it might not be as exciting as you expected.

Better off checking the event's page before you schedule your visit!

I wish there was a site like that for Japan cons only in English.

Actually, I'd settle for a site like that in Japanese. Unfortunately, when I follow the link above, the site it takes me to is in Chinese ><

Chinese? That's weird. I get Japanese (lots of Kanji, sure, but there's katakana and hiragana in there, too).

No, pure kanji here. Even worse, there aren't any breaks anywhere. It's like a block of solid kanji. It might be there browser I'm using. I ended up running the link through Bablefish (Chinese to English) and that helped a bit, though it's still pretty hard to make out. Found a few events that sound interesting, though (even one this weekend in my city).

Weird; I'd definitely say that's some sort of setting on your browser, then. I'm not too computer savvy, unfortunately. What's the "language" setting of your browser at?

OT - Nagoya is a nice city! I was there for the Expo and would like to visit the area again sometime. ^-^ Lucky! I'm up north in Aomoriken. Doubt there's many events up here. Maybe I should scan that page...

Well, my computer is Japanese, and though the browser I use is set to English, I have no problem viewing Japanese websites. It's odd. It could be a security setting that's affecting the website. I'm not too worried about it anymore - like I said, running the link through Babelfish helped a bit. Then it was just a matter of viewing the sites it linked to in Japanese. I mean, my Japanese isn't very good, but I can at least figure out places and dates and stuff like that =)

Off topic: I like Nagoya. From a tourist's point of view, I think it's a boring city - there isn't really much to do, and what it *does* do, other cities do better (like Kyoto, Osaka or Tokyo). But it's a great place to live! I have friends up in Akita and Morioka, though. They say it's lovely.

Eek, my computer doesn't like that website at ALL. @_@ I can't even get hiragana/katakana to show up, and my computer does support it, as I was just at a Japanese cosplay site a few minutes ago, so there's probably something going on with either my browser settings or the website itself....which is really unfortunate because I was hoping to find some kind of event that would possibly be taking place near me when I'm studying abroad next year (*crosses fingers*). Blar!

edit: problem fixed ^^;

ketto.com shows up in Japanese for me.
I'm using Firefox 1.0.7 and my character encoding is SHIFT_JIS.

Another site that has a good event list is Cosmode:
http://www.cosmode.net/pc/event/

Cosmode's site has a much nicer layout, it's easier to read and all of the events listed are cosplay, not just doujin sales.
