AKA Indonesia University’s Japan Fest.

This week, two events are overlapping each other. Popcon Asia and Gelar Jepang UI.
Basically, this two events are similar. But still, there are some differential.

Gelar Jepang UI

Gelar Jepang UI

Popcon Asia is aiming toward modern popular art and creation. It does not have to be Japan culture, it can be anything. While Gelar Jepang UI is focusing on Japan culture like, Anime, Manga, Cosplay, food, etc.

While I have to pay 25.000 IDR for the ticket fee in Popcon Asia, Gelar Jepang UI is free to enter. Althought, I was little bit confused at the gate because people are writing on a piece of paper. I thought it was the ticket, but actually it just a visitor survey.

Unlike last year, today event is divided into several area. Commercial booth are on the main street, food stalls are separated in different area, next to the commercial booth. While Doujin booth are inside the Japan Culture Study building.

Even the Doujin booth is still the part of Gelar Jepang UI event, but they are given a special name, Comic Frontier.

Basically, Comic Frontier is a small version of Comiket. You can see and buy a lot of Doujin works, most of it are Poster, Postcard, Doujinshi, pins, keychain, music, etc.
