Maker Faire Tokyo #7 This Weekend

This Saturday and Sunday, somewhere between 6,000 and 8,000 people will convene on the seventh Maker Faire Tokyo at the Tokyo Technology of Institute in the Meguro district.

The Japanese call their Maker Faires a “Make: Meeting,” and with 260 makers exhibiting, performing, and offering workshops, it is definitely a Meeting with a capital M!

MAKE Magazine has a Japanese edition and an online presence at  The first Make: Meeting Tokyo was in 2008, and with the exception of last Spring (because of the earthquake), these fairs have been occurring twice a year. This weekend marks number seven.

Check out their fantastic event program. They are planning a Dark Room along the lines of the flagship Faires in the US, a DIY music stage, and full-day lineups of both presentations and workshops. One of the headliners is Gianluca Martino, from the Arduino team, who is there to participate and lead some workshops. It’s also cool to see a DIY Energy room and a CRAFT section.

Watch this weekend and next week for more updates and reporting from the Make: Tokyo Meeting 07 team.
