The event is held from May 13(Thu) till May 16(Sun). Today and tomorrow are the business days, but the show will be open for public on Saturday and Sunday.

Here's our coverage! We'll be posting a lot more from the site, and all of our contents related to Shizuoka Hobby Show 2010 will be linked from this post later on.

"Why Shizuoka? Why not Tokyo?", you might think.

As a matter of fact, with Tamiya's headquarter, Bandai's Gundam models factory, Aoshima Bunka Kyozai, Hasegawa Corporation and many more companies based in the area, Shizuoka can be rightfully called the hub of hobby industry in Japan.
