We are artists, staffs, attendees, and sponsors of Kintoki-Con, an event that focuses on bringing the convention's experience back to the culture; and to the fans.
In addition to celebrating Japanese culture and animation, we will embrace other cultures, such as Korean and Chinese influences.

Please join us at our next convention in Sacramento, California on June 18-19, 2011!.

So what is Kintoki-Con?
Kintoki-con is a con created not just around Japanese media (though it is a great part of it) but also Korean and Chinese. Afterall, Japan would not have existed without China right? (Hetalia reference). Korea's recent shining days are also a welcoming show of just how fast it can catch up to the game.

Why Kintoki-Con?
The name Kintoki was a spoof from Golden Hour (or Golden Time), which is when most TV stations host the hottest shows. For Japan it's when the otakus get home from work.
In China it's when kids go online in search of their favorite anime after school. In the US...its the news hour when parents get home and cartoon hour for the kids (or at least it used to be cartoon
Kaze-Hime of Deviantart was the one who came up with the name, after much debating over other name options.

We know everyone is busy getting ready for Fanime but don't forget that online registration for Kintoki goes offline after June 1st! Be sure to register before then (pre-registering helps us a lot since it lets the hotel know that people are interested). Click Here To Pre-Register!

Just a reminder that Masquerade is Pre-Reg only. If you don't pre-register online you won't be able to perform. It's really easy! Just Click Here To Fill Out The Form!
You don't need to apply for runway online if you don't want to, but it'd be helpful to us so we know how many to expect. Its the same form as Masq. Just a different section on the form. =)

Hall Cosplay
Hall Cosplay is a special Friday only event! Meaning you must be pre-registered in order to attend and participate!

Cafe Kintoki has their website online! However in order for the cafe to pull through they need your help, the hotel won't let us hold the cafe unless we get enough pre-regs. Please help our cafe out by Pre-Registering!

All right all you gamers! We know you are interested but why are you not pre-registering? It's a $500 grand prize + Faye Mata is gonna be there! REMEMBER! MoG is a PRE-REGISTERED EVENT! If we don't get enough pre-registers we will be forced to cancel the tournament. =( We don't want to though so PLEASE PRE-REGISTER HERE!

FANIME! - Registration, Guests, and more!
WE WILL BE AT FANIME! If you don't have a paypal or just are too special to book online, we will be selling pre-reg weekend, saturday and sunday passes at Fanime! We will also have some event passes as well and if you are interested in booking a room let us know and we will give you a hotel pass. However if you fail to actually book a room the pass will be void. We will be checking. We can also register children under 12 for a child pass for free with a paying adult!

As some of you may have seen, ryusukehamamoto will also be at Fanime as one of their guests. Be sure to stop by and say hi to him! Also Team4D will have booths in the Artist Alley.

We will have a few special guests will be making an appearance in the artist alley; stay tuned for more info!
