FOOD AND DRINK

It is very important to remember to eat and drink regularly during Banzaicon. It’s easy to forget about such things as thirst and hunger when a lot of things are happening, but in order to be at the top of your game, food and beverage is extremely important. We offer food at reasonable prices in our café, so that you can get proper nutrition without having to deal with expensive restaurants or other pricey stores.

LUGGAGE AND DRESSING ROOMS

We can store your luggage, but neither Banzaicon nor Rounin Events will stand responsible for any lost belongings. If you are planning to wear a costume, but don’t want to travel in it, it’s possible to use our spacious restrooms as dressing rooms, where you can safely change your clothes without an audience.
