CrunchyRoll Expo

San Jose Japantown

This year Crunchyroll Expo is located in lovely downtown San Jose, do you know what also happens to be in San Jose? One of the last three remaining authentic historic Japantowns in the United States!

Lively Japantown is known for its dynamic dining scene, with unpretentious eateries serving regional Japanese fare, as well as Japanese-American and Hawaiian diners. On the busy streets, chic clothing and gift shops mix with hip galleries and karaoke bars. The Japanese American Museum highlights stories of immigration and WWII internment, while peace is found in the gardens of the San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin.

  • Looking for a spot to grab teriyaki? Swing by Gombei!
  • Drop by Classic Loot on Jackson street to find some truly interesting items.
  • Every Sunday (including Sunday of CRX!) The Japantown Farmers Market is on starting at 8:00 am, perfect for breakfast before heading over to the show
