Japan Expo is a convention on Japanese popular culture - the largest of its kind in Europe - 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 in the beginning of July, for four days (usually from Thursday to Sunday), in the Parc des Expositions de Villepinte (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 around 208,000 for the 2012 edition.
