Could the Japan Expo inspire you to reserve a Paris hostel room?
People who are looking to go on a weekend away next month may like to check out the Japan Expo in Paris.

The French event features an array of oriental happenings which include a video games market and a host of shops, so why not book a cheap hostel in Paris for the occasion?

This year it is celebrating its 11th anniversary and there will be plenty of activities to indulge in such as conferences, fashion shows and exhibitions.

One of the attractions of the event - that takes place between July 1st and 4th - includes the Anime Screening, which features Japanese as well as French animation.

Keen gamers might like to visit this year's attraction in particular because of one man - Hideo Kojima. The originator of the long-running Metal Gear Solid series is set to be in attendance and the director/producer has since gone on to create his own studio - Kojima Productions.

Individuals who are keen on attending the event at the Paris-Nord Villepinte may like to book a Paris hostel room near the venue.

One of the main Japanese traditions - martial arts - will also be exhibited at the extravaganza. There will be regular shows during the celebration with a variety of sports set to be on display including judo, karate and akido among others.

The organisers describe the attraction as being "not a mere festival but a real party event", as well as "a place of amazing meetings between passionate people who like to gather around thousands activities".
