From "Anime Expo Tokyo 2004: A California Convention Visits Japan," by Kat Avila, Jade Magazine, Feb 2004:
AX Tokyo was a modest-sized convention, an experimental extension of Anime Expo held every July 4th weekend in Southern California. It was a cooperative effort between the U.S.-based SPJA (Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation) and the Japanese Association for Science Fiction International Communication (JASFIC).
