Tokyo Game Show

Tokyo Game Show

Giants of the gaming world outdo each other with the latest innovations at the world's biggest video game expo.

The Tokyo Game Show focuses mainly on Japanese game developers with only a few guest international exhibitors but as Japan is at the forefront of gaming there is plenty on show from companies such as Sony, Microsoft Japan, Capcom, Namco Bandai and Sega.


When to go: The Tokyo Game Show is usually held in September and InsideJapan can include tickets in your holiday package.
