The best video game convention in Japan is Tokyo Game Show.
東京ゲームショウ/Tokyo Game Show is an annual event held in Makuhari Messe, Chiba.
It has the big players – Playstation and Xbox.
It also has indie developers and new technology, like Oculus.
It packs tens of thousands of visitors into the exhibition space to play new games and watch interviews.
Expect to queue for 1-2 hours to try the games!
After the business-only days, it is open for two days to the public for around 1,000 yen.
You can buy lots of limited edition goods at the stalls, like Square Enix and Capcom.
It is also a haven for cosplayers.
If you love video games and can handle the crowds it’s a perfect afternoon!
It’s held every September.
