On May 18, 06, my good friends, Jonathan, Leo and I made a trip to Japan to visit the annual Shizuoka hobby show. This is the biggest annual hobby show in Japan with many many manufacturers displaying their new products, as well as model clubs throughout Japan showing off their work. I am typing up this report to share with you all with what I saw there :D.. This is also my 1st ever trip to Japan, so I blended in some interesting experience here too. Enjoys.
We took American Airline flying from San Jose, CA to Narita, Japan. It's a direct flight and airfare was US$605. Not a big deal.
I am not going to explain what is what.. Just enjoy the photos.
The followings are the display works from many many modeling club in Japan. Enjoys.. You will see tons of nice work that will make you dizzy.
After almost 3 hours touring around the halls.. my head got very dizzy.. I think I saw more built models in this 3 hours than what I saw in past 30 years !! LOL!!! Next stop Tamiya HQ.
We spent some time to department stores to buy fancy snack and dessert, then we took the afternoon flight back to San Jose.. 9 hours flight.. That's it for this short trip.. but full of fun.. I was like a big kids shopping here and there. Hope you enjoy this diary.. sorry that I didn't take much picture of different hobby stores... Hopefully photos of the show can make them up.
