Wonder Festival is the world’s largest event of plastic figures and models held in Japan twice a year. The highlight of the event is the display and selling of the “garage kits”, which are kits of plastic models produced by both pros and amateurs.

 

These events are very popular. Be aware that it’s going to be very crowded and that popular products will be sold out quickly. Plan ahead and enjoy the winter events in Japan!
