  • The whole Makuhari complex is pretty cool, not to mention gigantic. It’s worth to attend conventions there but be wary that it’s pretty hot on the main hall. On the other hand there are plenty of places to get refreshments or refreshed yourself.
  • Whether it's Summer Sonic or a convention, this is a solid location. Food, shopping, lodging, transportation - it's all in the area. Local transport will get you right out front, but it's definitely walkable. Wish they had something for WiFi, but data will do in the mean time.
