Wonder Festival 2022 [Winter] was held on 6th February 2022 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba. Typically held twice a year, in winter (early February) and summer (late July), the pandemic resulted in postponed and canceled multiple times, making this the first time in two years since winter 2020 that the event was successfully held.
Wonder Festival is an event dedicated primarily to “garage kits”: Scale model kits made out of resin in small quantities, many of which are produced by hobbyists. Popular subjects of garage kits include characters and vehicles from anime, movies, tokusatsu, and of course video games. The nature of these kits being produced in small quantities by hobbyists means that many cover niche topics. The event also has an area dedicated to companies displaying their latest and upcoming products (covered in this article).
