San Japan 13

Welcome To San Japan The 13th

September 2nd – September 4th
Labor Day Weekend 2022

San Japan is the Largest Anime & Gaming Convention in the South Texas Region.  We take place at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and San Antonio Grand Hyatt in downtown San Antonio on Labor Day Weekend. San Japan is a fan-run organization providing an annual anime-focused convention.

You can show some initiative and get your badge taken care of now so you’re not fumbling with money later. Guarantee you have your badge before the convention arrives and spend less time in lines and more time enjoying the convention.

Remember that you are also helping us supply high-quality entertainment and education while fostering a safe and fun environment for all our attendees. Be a part of our cause – striving to cultivate an acceptance and appreciation of anime and related fandoms.
