J-POP SUMMIT 2016: Japanese cultural festival back to San Francisco

J-POP SUMMIT, hosted by SUPERFROG Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is a Japanese cultural festival held every summer since 2009 in San Francisco. By introducing the latest in Japanese music, fashion, film, art, games, tech-innovations, anime, food, as well as niche subcultures, the festival has become a landing platform for new trends from Japan.

The festival is also getting attention as an effective opportunity for promotion and entry point into US markets. J-POP SUMMIT in 2016 will be held at three locations; the Regency Ballroom for the opening event on Friday, July 22nd, Fort Mason Center as the main venue for two days on July 23rd (Sat) and 24th (Sun), and NEW PEOPLE Cinema for the film festival that runs for nine days from July 23rd to 31st.
