The Congress Hall : a new space for japan Expo Sud!

For its 10th Anniversary, Japan Expo Sud is settling down for the first time in Marseille Chanot's Congress Hall, on top of halls 1 & 2: new facilities to welcome you even better and propose ever more programming:

  • The Ichigo and Yuzu Stages are set in the auditorium and amphitheatre of the Congress Hall.
  • The Sakura Stage is a 360 stage.
  • News stages are created, the Sora Stage for games and quizzes in hall 1, and a Video Room in the Congress Hall.

This leads to a few changes in the access to the festival, now through Gate E, by Sainte-Marguerite Dromel metro station: read the new access map and the general floor map to know about the new features and read on to have all the explanations you might need.
