First exhibition nationwide! Feel the essence of KAIYODO - a domestic pioneer of figurines!

GO!GO! KAIYODO Exhibition
KAIYODO, a domestic pioneer of figurines, is reputed to have reached the "domain of art" with its modeled objects, which overflow with life. To commemorate the 55th anniversary since its birth, the "GO!GO! 海洋堂展~創立55周年記念展~" (lit.: GO!GO! KAIYODO Exhibition: Exhibition Commemorating 55 Years Since Establishment), which traces its journey up till today, will be held at Fukuoka PARCO from Friday 7th June to Sunday 23rd June. This is the exhibition's national debut, so be quick to go and experience for yourself the essence of KAIYODO!
GO!GO! KAIYODO Exhibition
There are approx. 1,000 items on display. At the venue, starting with a zone for the best works in the history of the company (ex.: 'shokugan' [free toys that comes with a particular candy or type of food product] and life-size figures etc.), there are zones separated by model maker, which demonstrate works rich in individuality. Not only that, zones lined with cardboard kigurumi-character 'DANBOARD' that appeared in the comic "Yotsuba&!", to a zone where dioramas are gathered together, reproducing scenes from anime in mini-size, are available. So be sure to make the most of this opportunity and feel the essence of KAIYODO! Aside from exhibiting the collection of company president Miyawaki Shuichi (宮脇修一), also known as "Senmu" both inside and outside KAIYODO, the exhibition will feature a lecture by Mr. Miyawaki on the 15th (Sat)! Don't miss out limited edition figures and capsule toys which will be on sale at the venue, too! (Editorial Dept., nika)
