The Sangawa Project, presented by the Pittsburgh Japanese Culture Society, is an 18+ convention in which fans can gather together to discuss their favorite anime, both new and old, challenge themselves in our retro gaming room, show off their best cosplay, attend awesome panels and just relax in a more mature environment. Additionally, Sangawa provides unique content such as the Taste of Japan which allows attendees (over the age of 21) to sample a variety of Japanese libations, including Saké, Shōchū and cultural beers!

Located in the Drury Plaza Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh, PA on November 30th – December 2nd, 2018.

Taste of Japan

21+ Event

The Taste of Japan room is back! We’ve changed up our offering to bring you more delicious Japanese imports. Enjoy a selection of Japan’s sake, whiskey, shochu, and more while learning basic tasting and appreciation techniques. The room will be open from noon to 4pm on Saturday, allowing you to come and go as you please and not miss any content that you are looking forward to seeing. Check back for updates on this year’s beverage selections!

Sangawa Social

21+ Event 

The Sangawa Social will be a little different this year… instead of picking a theme and showing a video, we challenge you to show off those taste buds! We will be forming teams to try to guess all of the ingredients in each of our tasty beverages. The more ingredients you guess, the more points your team will receive. The team with the most discerning palate wins (their choice from our Sangawa Prize Table)!
