Welcome to Shizuoka City, a global capital for models

The Shizuoka Hobby Show is one of the biggest in Japan: a showcase for a wealth of different products from static models to railroad models, radio-controlled models and more, from many of the top Japanese brands: a great opportunity to catch up on the very latest market trends.
The Show has two trade days (May 10th and 11th) for buyers and trade professionals, a students’ day (May 12th) for children at elementary, junior high and high schools in Shizuoka Prefecture, and two public days on May 13th and 14th, during which members of the general public can enter for free.
Public days will also host the 32nd Modelers’ Club Exhibition, with modeler clubs from Japan, America, China, South Korea, Taiwan and ASEAN combining to show more than 10,000 of their creations, while for two days the Shizuoka City South Gym will play host to a number of hands-on R/C model events such as races, kit assembly workshops and more, with the support of organizations such as Toyota Motor Corporation.
