Ibaraki Airport in Omitama, Ibaraki Prefecture will hold the Ibaraki Airport Cosplay Festival on March 14.

The event is connected to the “Comiket Special 5 in Mito” being held on the 21st and 22nd in the city of Mito. It will be the first time for the airport passenger terminal to act as the venue for a public event after it opens on March 11.

The event will be located inside the building and at the adjoining Airport Park, where there will be photo shoots in cosplay costumes and “cosplay fortune-telling.” A raffle is also scheduled where participants can win local specialties from seven nearby municipalities. Admission is 1,000 yen for cosplayers and 1,500 yen for photographers. Advance registration is required for both. Reception will open at 10:00 a.m. at the festival site.

A full-blown cosplay festival is a rare event for an airport terminal building. An event organizer commented, “It’s an amazing situation you won’t get a second chance to see.” The festival will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
