  A new museum of  plastic models and dioramas was open  in front of  Shizuoka station south exit on the 3rd floor of South Pot Shizuoka on this 11th.

I was  happily enough to join a training program of  a new “tour-guide” system of  AISO (Asia Inbound Sightseeing Organization) and visited the new museum on its  very ground opening day on 11th.


Shizuoka prefecture in the Tokai Rigion of  or Chubu Japan, a central region, is famous for its world leading hi- tech  companies of automobiles, motorcycles, music instruments , such as Yamaha .Yet, The prefecture is also well-known for its renowned toy manufacturers  of plastic models, radio-controlled cars, – airplanes,  and  splendid dioramas, such as Tamiya, Aoshima , Bandai, and others .  

The Square is associated with such models, toys,  motorcycles,and picturesof those companies.

I was personally reminded of  good old memories of  those items which I  eagerly  assembeld and played in my childhood such as Aoshima’s   robot model.

The museum also includes a souvenior store which sells some of the exhibited items.   I made up my mind to buy some of the items which I really liked and some visitors bought those items there. 

What was the most impressive is  The chairperson of  Tamiya was there and  I spoke to him  and exchanged our business cards.  Some  journalists who accommpanied us  for our coverage  also interviewed him.  

In addition, the Square will  sometimes host  special  exhibitions of artworks of  famous artists of those items.
