Saw the advert on the subway on my first day in Osaka, so I went today to check it out. It was a crowded mess, but it was good to see all the kids so interested in die cast vehicles.
There wasn’t much TLV stuff, which was a disappointment. Lots of displays of sets, trains, and activities for the kids. For the 1000 yen entry fee, you get a choice of two event vehicles.
There was a charming sign that asked attendees not to resell the event only vehicles, along with a limit of five each. I saw several guys grab the max five available. I also found a sweet Tomica t-shirt, but it was only available in Asian small (I asked an attendant but he couldn’t find any other sizes).
Here are a few pix from the event. It runs through the 7th of May, so if you’re in the area, makes sure to check it out.
