Japan Expo is a convention on Japanese popular culture - the largest of its kind in the world outside Japan[2] - taking place in Paris, France, although it has branched out into a partnership festival - Kultima - and expanded to include some European and US pop culture as well. It is held yearly at the beginning of July for four days (usually from Thursday to Sunday) in the Parc des Expositions de Villepinte (the second-largest convention center in France). The attendance has increased steadily over the years, with 3,200 visitors welcomed in the first edition in 1999 and more than 250,000 for the 2016 edition.

History

Momoiro Clover Z performed at Japan Expo 2012. The group is ranked as number one among female idol groups according to 2013-2017 surveys.[3]

Event history

The first exposition took place in 1999 at the Institut supérieur du commerce de Paris and welcomed 3,200 visitors, a number which has grown steadily. In 2002, Japan Expo was hosted at the Center of New Industries and Technologies (CNIT) in La Défense, Paris.

In 2005, the event was canceled out of security concerns due to the large number of visitors. The exposition has since moved to the larger Parc d'Expositions in Paris-Nord Villepinte.
