Ninja-con is a one day anime and asian convention held every year in June in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center. This year, the event was held on June 4th, 2016. I normally attend bigger conventions, but I decided to attend the smaller convention to see what it was like. California-grown talents in the convention and cosplay community that were in appearance included The Shogunate, Takeriya Samurai and Chocolate Covered Cosplay. The only drawback that it was outdoors where it was nearly 100 degrees outside.

As I attend more and more conventions, I meet more and more people from the press to the photographers, and the con-goers. My day considered of talking with cool and interesting people, eating from the food truck (Okamato Kitchen being my favorite), and even got a photoshoot in my cosplay. The one amazing thing about being at JACCC is the beautiful garden on the base level of the building. Known as Seiryu-en or “Garden of the Clear Stream,” the James Irvine Japanese Garden is a “hidden gem” of downtown Los Angeles and one of the most unique and elegant venues in the city. Overall, the Ninja-con is definitely a small break from the larger conventions and just a place to enjoy yourself.
