Bordeaux was the orphan of one of its most popular animation events around pop culture and for this 14th edition of a Festival which has grown dramatically from a confidential space to the Parc des Expositions, the H14 n ‘ having been able to support its success, we should see the big comeback despite a small gauge.
In Bordeaux, more than 150 restaurants are dedicated to Asian gastronomy and which represent almost all Asian countries. Demonstrations, workshops, conferences, exhibitions and a dedicated foodcourt awaits you for this 16th edition of Animasia whose theme is Asian gastronomy. The French have always been interested in what is on their plate or even passionate, as well as what their more or less distant neighbors, too, emit there. An excellent opportunity to learn both practically and theoretically on what a foodcourt is, which is a very busy catering space in Japan where the tables are not dedicated because it is a common catering area. around different forms of cuisine offered by independent providers. It is a type of catering at the antipodes of the culture of French catering but practiced in Bordeaux at La Boca where the atmosphere comes before what is on the plate. The curious side of the matter is that American culture is transmitted to us by Japan!

Of course, the cosplay and music atmosphere remain inseparable from this event during these two days when video games are also part of Animasia’s DNA with its dedicated spaces. Cartoonists, photographers and artists of all kinds exhibit their works around pop culture at the Animasia Festival. Along the aisles, you can discover their works and their stories throughout these two days of Animasia. You will be able to take a trip to the heart of Asia in general and Japan in particular around its food, because if Asian restaurants are numerous with some having established themselves in Bordeaux like that of the Shan brothers, Japanese restaurants are not. not legion in Bordeaux. During the Tokyo Olympic Games, we saw some brief reports giving us a very small glimpse of Japanese cuisine, but during these two days you will be able to confront the Foodcourt. Of course, this Animasia is governed by the health rules in force with mask and health pass.
