The Makuhari Messe is what you would expect - it is an exhibition area! The free WiFi is a problem if you don't have a local SIM / don't want to use international calling to sign up (making it "not free"). This should be resolved. Otherwise it is largely what you would expect from a Messe!

I had been here a total of 3 times to attend Tokyo Game Show and Jump Festa (a Japanese animation related event). First and foremost, you do not have to arrive too early, just about one hour or so before the event opens is fine unless you want to be first to grab some promotional stuff in there. Even though...

I came here for AKB48 Individual handshake. The place is very big and as always it is clean and neat. The number of toilets are sufficient for large amount of people during the event.

We came for Ozzfest 2015 and were impressed with the layout. The outside had tons of merch tables and staff at the entrance so there were very few lineups for anything. Impressive and extensive food and bar selection so again, no real big lineups. The venue held 10000 comfortably and the sound was fantastic. Also lots of area on the... More

A conference center is included. Some snack bars and vending machines, restaurants are in walking distance or in the two major hotels across the street. A huge shopping mall is near by... More
