It moved this year to Yokohama to a better venue, but it's anemic. Substantially less exhibitors - looks to be about half the number of previous fairs. Pretty shocking, actually. Small booths and more sakura than real attendees.

Sakura are employees of the company or people paid to go to a booth and pretend to be enthusiastic fans of the product.

Bridgestone is simply a Tiger video booth of him and their golf ball. It's embarrassingly tacky and wreaks of desperation and last gasp to cash in on him.

Sakura lined up to hit Callaway and Ping at their hitting area.

I'm quitting at 6.022 x 10^23 posts.
Avogadro would be proud.

I didn't see them at the fair.
Didn't notice any of the OEM makers.
Most equipment booths were light on product.
