In Japan, events related to otaku culture are held every weekend, whether it be for dōjinshi, anime, you name it. Large figurine events like Wonder Festival are held throughout the year. But, if huge events aren’t your thing, AK-GARDEN might be up your alley.

What is AK-GARDEN?

AK-GARDEN is a figure event founded on four themes: movability, small size, creativity, and interdisciplinary style. At AK-GARDEN, dealers and figurine fans alike showcase their love and creativity through dioramas, cases, and scenes of their beloved figures. A small event with a community feel, AK-GARDEN 13 made a home in Asakusa, Tokyo on November 12, 2017.

Around Akiba sponsor and figure company Milestone made an appearance at AK-GARDEN to show their latest figures in action.
