Description :

We're holding a special Retro Computer Festival weekend as part of our Made in Japan season. We'll be showing a wide range of Japanese computers, console and handhelds from our archive - many of which were never sold in this country - from manufacturers such as Fujitsu, Bandai, Sharp, Sony, Sega and NEC. 

We're also inviting Japanese computer and games enthusiasts and collectors to come show off their systems and software and to be on hand to tell you more about these rare and unusual machines.
