Japanese Anime 88-Spots Voting Now Open

The Anime Tourism Association of Japan (Chairman: Yoshiyuki Tomino, hereinafter the Association) will be holding a “Japanese Anime Spot Web Vote” for inclusion in the 2022 edition of “Japanese Anime 88-Spots” until November 30, 2021 (Tuesday).

The Association has held a “Japanese Anime Spot Web Vote”, and has selected “Japanese Anime 88-Spots” every year based on the suggestions of anime fans all over the world. In 2020, we postponed the voting in view of the situation due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, but in 2021 we are looking forward to the time when everyone will be able to visit anime spots safely after the coronavirus pandemic has settled down. This is the first vote after an absence of 2 years. Votes are being accepted on the special website from June 21 (Monday) to November 30 (Tuesday).

The votes received from anime fans all over the world will provide valuable data when the Association selects anime spots for inclusion in the “Japanese Anime 88-Spots, 2022 Edition”, as well as when planning future anime spot activities and regional promotions through anime tourism.
