BIG-ASS GALLERY #2 - 2014 Tokyo International Toy Show

That's Right, Yet Another Big-Ass Gallery of Really Great Photos. Of Toys 
Last month, the 2014 Tokyo International Toy Show - an event with the best or worst acronym ever, you decide - was held at the Tokyo Big Sight tradeshow and conference center out in Tokyo Bay. The venue is huge, the show is huge. It's literally and figuratively awesome.

The show is also filled with screeching children and cringeworthy, borderline creepy marketing tactics that can make a human ashamed to be one. Among this year's traumatized attendees was AkihabaraNews' Senior Contributor and Panasonic GH3 Symbiote Nayalan MoodleyDespite his icky feelings from being around so much happiness, he shot some amazing photos. A lot of them. 

And so, thanks to our brave photographer's perseverance through the minefield of overwhelming joy and glee, we present here #2 of 3 BIG-ASS GALLERIES. You'll find the gallery links and Nayalan's video essay below - ENJOY!  

Some Event Background:

"The Tokyo Toy Show is Japan’s most important fair for toys and has existed since 1962 – in various forms and with different names. The motto of the event is "EnterTOYment - toys make the world smile". Besides games, dolls and plush products, the product groups in Tokyo include seasonal and electronic toys. The event is divided into two parts: only trade visitors are admitted on the first two days, whereas end consumers are also welcome on the last two days. The Tokyo Toy Show in 2013 took place in the Tokyo Big Sight Exhibition Center from 13 to 16 June. Overall, 18.738 trade visitors and 140.573 end-consumers attended the fair."   -Via World of Toys

Some of the Street Shots scream and grab the eye, some are subtle and nuanced, and some are quite mundane. In any case, we feel lucky to be here and privileged to share the Tokyo that we see.

RECAP & TOP 3: Venture Day Tokyo 2014 (GALLERY)
With attendance more than twice that of 2013, interest is clearly on the rise and the collaboration seems well placed among the growing and steadily maturing calendar of Tokyo startup pitching events. Pitches were made by teams led by both Japanese and/or foreign residents, non-Japanese multinational teams of students or alumni from the two academic sponsors, and even a completely non-affiliated American developer who joined from Osaka.
