Now, when we say fight, we don’t mean real fights (except for the wrestlers) – this event is a play on the Japanese words for battle, challenge and support and aims to promote Japan’s many strengths. Offering a mix of modern and traditional highlights, the event will run for 10 days and has a huge selection of food and entertainment with artists, music and more. There will be live bands at an outdoor stage with a festival feel, local chefs cooking up their best dishes and even professional wrestling displays. It will take place at Symbol Promenade Park in front of Gundam Square in Odaiba.
There are different focuses on different dates, so for example Friday the 17th is Battle stage day, Sunday 19th is Family day and Saturday 25th is Cool Music Day. General admission is free but special events require tickets, for which prices vary depending on the day but generally range from 2,500 with advance discounts available.
