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.
Past exhibitor pics!
Our collectors are getting their exhibits together! Keep checking back to see what they're bringing.

Quang has pretty much every Japanese console ever released and will be bringing a selection of the rarer and more unusual machines to show us!
When he's not looking after the collection here at the museum, Adrian's busy polishing his own collection of PC Engines and other Japanese consoles. He'll be bringing PC Engines, Tomys, and maybe even some NEO GEOs!
The Dragon 32 might not come from Japan, but plenty of other machines in Tony's collection do...!
Resident Japanese train enthusiast Dan will be bringing along a selection of games and hardware from the hit arcade train simulation Densha de GO!
John will be displaying a selection of Japanese pocket computers from Sharp, Casio, and Seiko. In addition, the Epson HX20, probably the worlds first laptop computer, will be presented as never seen before.
Some Japanese consoles are known through out the whole world, others are not. Come see a few of those lesser known consoles, some of which are probably not well know for very very good reasons.
Phil will be raiding his collection of Sega systems to bring us a great selection of computers and consoles.
