“The word ‘Matsuri’ is a Japanese word meaning “festival”. We want Idol Matsuri to capture the spirit of celebration in support of the Japanese idols we are passionate about.
Anyone can find conventions and conferences focused on just about any fandom you can imagine – anime, sci-fi, comics, gaming, furry — you name it. There has yet to be a convention dedicated to Japanese idols. Idol Matsuri will be USA’s first Japanese idol convention.
We want to start an annual tradition for people to celebrate their love for idols. Our goal is to introduce the general public to idols, and promote awareness to its wonderful culture.”
