Brian's Field Trip #2

Hello everyone!

This is Brian, back for another edition of "Brian's Field Trip".

Today I will be introducing you to the Tokyo Figure Society 東京 フィギュア ソサエティ.  This is a fantastic group for anyone who loves to talk about painting and modeling (mostly) historical figures in a casual, friendly, and supportive environment. They meet in Akihabara, first at a cozy cafe, and then they move on to an izakaya for drinks and good food. The quality of the painters and modelers/sculptures there is world class.  Most of the people there also have some past history with wargaming and the West Tokyo Wargamers were lucky enough to have one of their members come by our meeting in Seiseki-sakuragaoka for a visit! 

Japanese is the primary language of communication, but there are members who speak English.  If you fancy yourself more of a painter then a player then please get yourself involved with the Tokyo Figure Society!

(If you need any information, on this or any other of "Brian's Field Trips" please feel free to email West Tokyo wargamers for details :-)

I will certainly be going back to their meetings (on the last Saturday of every month) whenever I get the chance.

Also the Tokyo Figure Society has a table in the "groups" section of the Shizuoka Hobby Show!   This year I will be making my first trip to the show, and I will see the exhibits, and hang out with everyone afterward. I am really excited! (It is the weekend after Golden Week, for those of you in Japan).

Until next time,

  1. Great post, Brian!

    Hmmm, Shizuoka, eh? Sounds like a plan in the making!
