Just another update for all of you here.
Akumakon is always working to give back to both the local and global charities. Last year, Akumakon donated €1,600 to both Jigsaw Galway and JAIFA Heartful, who have kindly sent us a special plaque thanking you for building friendship between Japan and Ireland.
We are happy to announce our 2015 Charities would be Jigsaw Galway and Japanese Red Cross.
And who are Jigsaw? Jigsaw Galway is a free, non-judgemental and confidential support service for young people (15-25) living in Galway city and county. They provide guidance and support for young people who are going through a difficult or distressing time. They also provide advice and guidance for anyone who is concerned about a young person in their life or work.

Hi again everyone!
We here at Akumakon just wanted to give everyone who came to Akumaday a big thank you for coming to Galway during your busy schedules. We all hope you enjoyed our little taster day and that you’ll come to see all of us again in January! Don’t worry though, cause we still have plenty of gifts and prizes to give away that are sure to get you pumped up for Akumakon.
On another note, we have finally been able to hunt down the last of the photos we took at Akumakon 2014 which you can view at the Gallery here on the site as well as the previous years photos too. We’re still trying our best though to find all of the photos from Akumakon 2013, but it’s proving to be quite the challenge. Rest assured though, if we happened to take your photo during 2013, we’ll be sure to put it up here as soon as we find it.
See you in January!!

You excited for Akumakon?
Are you jumping in your seats with excitement for January?
Then have no fear, we have a cure for your “Speedy Gonzales”-like passion. We’re happy to announce that Akumaday is happening this Saturday November 8th!
What is Akumaday you ask?
Akumaday is where we give everyone the chance to experience what Akumakon is like but on a bite-size scale. At Akumaday we’ll be having showings of anime, Card games, Video games, traders and we may even have a certain card game that we’re not aloud to tell about. (Hint: the more twisted or horrible your answer, the more likely you are to win the round.)
Hope to see all of you there!
