Pop Japan Travel (PJT), the tour provider run by Digital Manga and IACE Travel, is offering a "Mind over Manga" tour in which artists can have their works translated and printed for sale at Comitia, a dōjinshi event in Tokyo, Japan. Digital Manga will offer, as an option, to print a tour guest's original comic or artbook, and PJT will help sell the work at Comitia. The companies have not yet established the itineraries and the pricing for this tour and its options.
The provider is also offering this tour to people who do not wish to sell their own dōjinshi (self-published works), but still want to visit Comitia, an unspecified anime studio, and the Ghibli Museum. This summer, the 85th Comitia "original independence comic exhibition" will take place on August 24, and this tour will run from August 21 to August 28.
