My first time visiting the Ronin Expo held at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center. A one day event (10 AM – 09 PM) of Japanese American pop culture with non-stop panels, workshops, demonstrations and music. Many vendors, artists, crafts, cosply and my favorite, the Swap Meet. Special guest included Stephanie Nadolny, Les & Mary Claypool, Kevin M Conolly and Sarah Williams. Live performances by The Library Bards, The Koopas, Lovely Rushers, DataFist and The God Squad. I had a great time making new friends and enjoying the fun. Thank you Ronin Expo and staff for having me.

Ronin-Expo started in 2017 and was founded by six individuals that met and collaborated over the years at numerous events in Southern California. Since its inception the main focus of Ronin-Expo has been to promote a sense of community within Los Angeles and for those with a love of Asian culture. Ronin-Expo strives to collaborate with and encourage participation with artists, gamers, performers, and locals to create the most engaging and enjoyable experience possible.
Located in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, Ronin-Expo chose this location with the goal of being at the heart of one of the most prominent Japanese cities in the United States. While attending the con, guests can also visit the surrounding museums, dine at the local restaurants, and experience all that the city has to offer.
At Ronin-Expo, we celebrate the diverse aspects of the community. Our mission is to promote love, friendship, and knowledge through engagement with Asian art and culture in North America.
