Tokyo Marui Virtual Market 2022 Summer Edition

Many of us don’t get to see official Tokyo Marui representation at any trade fair as the company mainly attends trade fairs within the borders of Japan. The best to see them is to attend at the trade fairs in which they are mainstays such as the Shizuoka Hobby Show and the All Japan Model and Hobby Show.

But in recent years, you can get the chance to visit a Tokyo Marui booth without worrying about travelling to Japan all from the comfort of your home. All you need is a good mobile device or computer and a good internet connection and sign up to attend the Virtual Market, the largest world's largest VR event on the Metaverse.

Virtual Market is in the Guinness Book World of Records as having the largest number of booths for virtual reality market event.

In the 2022 Summer Edition, Tokyo Marui announced that they will have an even bigger booth for the fourth appearance in Virtual Market and apart from virtual airsoft guns, they will be showing off their collaboration with popular anime shows and video games in Japan.

The virtual booth of the Japanese airsoft company will be represented as a two-story booth that will be found in the Parareal Osaka/ Parareal New York in the Virtual Market 2022 Summer Edition. On the first floor, virtual visitors will get to see the various airsoft guns, especially the latest ones that the company has available in the market. Visitor will not only just get look at the virtual representation of the airsoft guns, they can also get to test them at the virtual shooting range. Deka Shimamura, Tokyo Marui’s PR head will be on hand to greet visitors on the first floor.

She will be there on hand to show the collaboration between Tokyo Marui and the creators of “Lycoris Recoil”, an anime show of all-female taskforce of assassins and spies known as "Lycoris", and “Dolls Frontline: Neural Cloud” one of the spin-offs o the “Girls Frontline” game and anime series (known in Japan as “Dolls Frontline” due to another company already owning the “Girls Frontline” trademark). Visitors can get to see life-size panels and videos of the characters from both titles.
