Working with the Sheraton Hotel, Overland Park Convention Center, and the City of Overland Park, it was decided to not hold Naka-Kon 2020 the weekend of March 13-15, 2020.

Due to scheduling constraints, we have decided rather than postpone until later to instead cancel Naka-Kon 2020, and concentrate our efforts on developing Naka-Kon 2021. This decision is based on the information we have regarding logistics and availability of our facilities.

This decision was very difficult to make, but we feel is the best course of action for continuing our mission of providing a quality celebration of Japanese popular culture.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact

However, due to the extenuating circumstances presented by the current COVID-19 outbreak, we are waiving our refund policy. We are also providing the option of rolling 2020 Memberships over to the 2021 convention in lieu of a refund. Please complete this form to let us know what you wish to do. If no reply to the form is given by March 27, 2020, then purchased badges will be automatically deferred and valid for Naka-Kon 2021. Badge refunds will start processing shortly but please be aware that due to the number of refunds involved it will likely be a couple weeks before all refunds are processed.

We appreciate your support for Naka-Kon and we will see you in 2021!

Hello everyone, I’m misono.

First of all, thank you for choosing me as 2020 Naka-Kon guest.

My friend Aya Kamiki actually performed at Naka-Kon last year, and she invited me on stage to sing together my song from Tales of Symphonia. The excitement and energy from the crowd that night was amazing, and I was very very happy. Thank you.

So this time, I wanted to sing more songs including the theme song from Inu-Yasha for you. Unfortunately, I have to cancel my appearance. Even though I cannot attend, I want to share my thoughts and gratitudes to everyone on my official blog, and would like to perform an a capella version of the song on my YouTube Channel instead.

If you are going to Naka-Kon, please have fun. In fact, the wonderful staff members will make this event amazing, so I have no doubt that these 3 days will be a blast for you all. That’s all from me.
