In 2015, the fair will be open to the general public on March 21 and 22, 2015.

AnimeJapan (formerly known as Tokyo International Anime Fair) is an annual tradeshow held at Odaiba's Big Sight convention center. It is the premier convention of the Japanese animation industry and one of the largest animation related events in the world. AnimeJapan is typically attended by several hundred Japanese and foreign TV and film production companies, as well as toy, game and software developers.

The majority of the floor space at Tokyo Big Sight is devoted to exhibition space featuring numerous booths by Japanese production companies, such as Toei Animation, Bandai Namco and Tezuka Productions, as well as foreign companies from around the world. Larger booths feature their own theaters and stages, and host live shows and special appearances by anime and manga creators as well as character actors that voice the parts.

Another third of the exhibition space will be given over to AnimeJapan's three main stages where various shows, concerts and other stage events will be held throughout the exposition. However, the stage events tend to be popular so to prevent overcrowding, entry to the audience areas will be determined by lottery.

Various other attractions hosted by the event organizers can be found around the convention center. They include theaters that show popular and landmark anime; stages for smaller shows, concerts, interviews, and other events; learning zones that introduce anime to the uninitiated, and an official shop. In addition, the convention will again feature a cosplay zone with changing rooms, photography spaces and a cloakroom. Rental costumes will also be available for those who do not bring or wish to use their own.
