A Local Perspective on Life in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

Canada Pavilion at Tokyo International Anime Fair 2007

I wouldn’t be a good Canadian if I didn’t tell you about the Canadian pavillion at the Tokyo International Anime Fair.

Thursday, March 22 to Sunday, March 25 at Tokyo Big Sight

Animation is big in Japan, and the Tokyo International Anime Fair just keeps growing and growing. Canadian software and content will be on display at four booths including an Embassy booth with an overview of Canada’s abundant creativity and state of the art technology plus three individual or joint booths by eight Canadian companies that will be at the fair. Canada produces 80% of the animation software used in the world. Don’t miss this chance to see it.

There will also be a seminar for people in the animation industry at the Embassy of Canada Theatre on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 20.

This information is from the “Culture Canada” email newsletter published by the Embassy of Canada in Japan. If you are a Canadian living in Japan, you might want to consider subscribing. (I found out through this newsletter that Margaret Atwood — the most famous Canadian author — was visiting Japan in February and was able to attend a reading by her at the Embassy. It was DIVINE!)
