Quest'anno si terranno a Tokyo due importanti eventi con date ravvicinate, qualora qualcuno avesse modo di prendersi qualche giorno di ferie sono certo che non se ne pentirebbe!!
Infatti la grande fiera Dai Token Ichi si dovrebbe tenere dal 16 al 18 Novembre (sulla quale non mi sto a dilungare perchè credo che la conosciate tutti) ed il weekend successivo la Convention N.B.T.H.K. per la quale vi copio il comunicato scaricabile dal loro sito: https://www.touken.or.jp/english/
The second All Japan Convention
The NBTHK’s 70th Anniversary
The Tatara’s 40th Anniversary
The second All Japan NBTHK Convention will be held at the new NBTHK
headquarters in Ryogoku, and we are looking forward to having many sword lovers
attend this event.
At the Token Kansho Kai, we will have 130 Mei-To available for attendees to examine
in hand in order to appreciate and study them. In addition, we will have a kantei
competition with an additional 5 blades: attendees will be asked to identify these
blades and submit paper ballots saying who the makers are, and we hope you will be
prepared for this challenge.
