We had a booth at Sakura-Con 2019 held at Washington Convention Center in Seattle, WA USA on April 19-21 2019. It was the first time experience for us, and had lots of fun. Here are photos from the exciting event including behind the scene photos.
Sakura-Con is the oldest and most well attended anime convention in the Pacific Northwest.
This is our first time attempt to have a booth at this conference. Since many of our customers are "Japan lovers" who love Japanese culture including anime, they told us that they are going to this conference. Taking their suggestions, we decided to be part of this legacy expo for the anime lovers to share the joy of loving Japan and Japanese culture.
Here is the link to their official website: Sakuracon 2019
We had lots of fun at the event. I will share highlight photos from the event. It was wilder than any Halloween Party I have been.
OK. First of all, let me share my favorite of all. Here is a picture I took with character from Spirited Away. He was walking like the actual character in the movie!
Seattle Convention Center is located literary in the middle of the downtown.
When we arrived for setup, they already had the banner and other signs installed.
This is how it looked before the event.
And this is during the event. Quite different huh?
We got our registration badges. It looked really nice with laminate! Each year, there is a contest for the drawing and only one gets picked from all the entries. I do like the design.
Here are Photos of booths during preparation
and here is our booth before setting up.
It is quite an effort to setup the booth. Kudos to all the other vendors; many of the booth looked amazing. It's a lot of effort goes into this.
And here is how our booth looks!
and me. : )
Our surprise this time was a new product "Matcha & Cashew", thanks to everyone, it sold out on the first day! I will keep you posted when we officially carry these.
And here are people waiting to get into the show before opening. Isn't it amazing?
And here are photos during the event.
People at the booth (when not too busy...) thank you everyone for stopping by at our booth!
And here are some of my favorite costumes and I had a courage to ask to take picture with me. (Thank you!)
We really had a great time at the event, and I was so excited to meet you all who visited our booth. We are planning to attend the next year again. Hope to see you again soon!
