  • Very small. And not alot for sale. The displays where very well placed. Just like any hobby shop
  • Free entrance to view the history of Japan plastic model manufacturing. For Gunpla fans, there are a few limited premium Bandai products that you can find here. Worth strolling through for 10 - 15 min if Ty Ou are around.
  • Small place at 3/F. Price a little high and not deserve for a visit.
  • If you visit when there is no 'model show' on its only a small area displaying some of the local manufacturers models, figurines and toys ranging from model historical buildings to aircraft, bikes, boats and cars etc Located on the 3rd floor and easily accessed from the station or from parking under/in the same building. Worth a stop but it'll only take a few minutes to wander and look on a NON SHOW day
  • Shizuoka Hobby Square is a great place to visit if you enjoy building models. Shizuoka has a history of model making as many large hobby model manufacturers are located in Shizuoka including Fujimi, Aoshima, Hasegawa, Tamiya, etc. This industry developed because before WWII as manufacturers of wooden models and toys took advantage of the plentiful forests in Shizuoka to create their goods. The permanent collection is free admission. Payment for special events varies by the event. When I was there they had a huge RC car track set up with lots of people racing cars they had created. Be sure to check out the gift show which is stocked with lots of models of all types. It`s easy to get to the Shizuoka Hobby Square; just across from the train station. There are signs but they are a little small. The museum is on the third floor so you will take an elevator to get there.
