Either way it will be a great event to see the new models from each of the bike makers, see the presenter girls, eat some great food and get caught up in the buzz of a big show and the huge crowds.

Best day to go would be a Tuesday or Wednesday if you want to avoid the big crowds.

While your in Makuhari stop by Starbucks for a coffee or at Carrefour supermarket for some great international foods (same building) and only a short five minute walk from the event.
