“Tokyo Comic Con 2016 will celebrate pop culture and technology in one of the world’s coolest cities,” said Wozniak. “From Godzilla to Pokemon to Power Rangers, Japan exports many pop culture trends to the rest of the world. Even the moral codes of the “Star Wars” Jedi are based on some of Japan’s historical samurai culture. In 2016, we will come full circle back to Japan to blend pop culture from Japan and the USA at Tokyo Comic Con.”
