J-Pop Summit Festival 2014

Last weekend on July 19th to July 20th 2014 I had the pleasure of attending the J-Pop Summit 2014 in San Francisco. The festival was packed with J-Pop stars such as Tokyo Girls Style, Tomomi Itano and many more.I had a blast watching the dance contest, touring the Japan Center and meeting artist in artist alley. Check out the pics below and video of my walk-through to see more. 

J-Pop Summit was a blast and I definitely will be going again next year. The festival offered some really cool events and stars that signed autographs. I will say this if you wanted ramen you better be there early. The ramen line was long the wait was two to three hours. One thing is for sure ramen is very popular at the J-Pop Summit.  I will say one of the major highlights, was the performance from Tokyo Girls Show and autograph session with Kei illustrator of Hatsune Miku. I even got some gaming done at the festival. J-Pop Summit wasn't all music, cosplayers and stars. The Japan Film Festival was also taking place at the New People Building. I didn't get a chance to see a film this time around but I will next year. Overall the event was great, minus that ramen line. I don't know, it seem like everyone in San Francisco wanted ramen that weekend. If you want a J-Pop experience without going fully to Japan, try going to the summit it's worth the trip.
