Kemono Square (ケモノスクエア) is a series of furry conventions starting in 2012,[1] and typically held in the "Granship" Shizuoka Convention & Arts Center in Shizuoka, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan.[2]

The event has historically been hosted by EIXIN. However, as of Hashimoto Kemono Lounge, it is officially organized by fursuit studio K-LINE (composed of EIXIN and Radywolf).[3]

Hashimoto Kemono Lounge[edit]

There was no event in 2018. However, at the end of the year, and continuing into January 2019, Kemono Square's Twitter account started posting what appeared to be event scouting photos - one of which had what appeared to be a date, 5/3 (in Japanese date order, May 3). On March 11 it was announced that as the typical Kemono Square venue was booked out, due in part to rennovations, the HK Lounge in Hashimoto, Sagamihara, Kanagawa had been booked for May 3, with the possibility for future events.[8] Entertainment was to be provided by guests Clover Hill[9] (a fursuit rock band) and Hyoga,[10] the juggling leopard moth/yellow dragon from Hamamatsu.[11][12] Dinner was to be buffet-style at the same venue; there were also restaurants, vending machines and hotels in the area.

The main event took place over 11AM-6PM, with dinner 7-9PM; there was room for 130 attendees aged 20+, including up to thirty male and ten female fursuiters (not including partials which do not require changing room facilities); the fee was 6,000 JPY.[12] There were at least 35 fursuiters, including invited guests.[13]
