Close to 1,000 exhibitors and 100,000 people will gather for the 18th annual Tokyo International Book Fair at Big Site in Odaiba. Held concurrently, the e-Book Expo—which bills itself as the world’s largest trade show for e-books and content—will take up, in a bilingual session, the latest digital rights management issues in the rapidly growing Asian e-book market. For the merely curious the fair offers exhibitions of the latest offerings from leading Japanese publishers like Kadokawa, taking in everything from fiction and non-fiction to the academic and children’s book markets.
