Switzerland Invades Liechtenstein!

...And promptly uninvades. Oops.

Well, I only just found out today due to a post on Journalfen:

WorldCon is coming to Japan!

Specifically, Yokohama. And, assuming I don't quit my job(!), I'm going to try to go. I haven't been to a Western-style con for ages. At least, I assume this is one of the ones where you stay-up-all-night-talking-about-Very-Important-Things-and-SF.

I wish I understood the pricing structure though...! Seems pretty expensive, but I still want to go.

It has an (unofficial) LJ, of course: nippon2007

The concert is tomorrow and I'm terrified.

Oh yeah, trying to get Tenimyu tickets too. But mainly concert.

Ooh, I want to go! ;o; I've never heard of that con before, but it would be a dream to be able to meet other sci-fi fans here in Japan (whether they live here or not). But I would never pay that much for a convention registration... it's way too high even for Japan. I emailed them about volunteering though, and even though it asked for a number, I hope that they'd be willing to take me on as a volunteer without having a membership. Usually it's comped... >.>

But if they let me in, I'm really looking forward to it! I want to be in the masquerade! Or even if I'm not allowed in, I can just go and hang out in the lobbys and stuff like a lot of people do at AX, just to meet other fans. That would be great. <3

Oh, wow, it'd never crossed my mind to volunteer. That would be fantastic. We're both probably bilingual enough. :)

It's actually a really big con, very famous. first time it's come to Japan though.
