Shizuoka is the capital of the model world!

By Takafumi Yabuki

Shizuoka City, which has a concentration of manufacturers such as Tamiya and Bandai Spirits and has an 80% share of the domestic shipment value of plastic models, announced on the 12th that it will install “plastic model monuments” in three locations in the city. It is said that an unveiling ceremony will be held in front of JR Shizuoka Station on the 19th.

The monument, which is about 2 meters high and is made of stainless steel, has the image of a “plastic model before assembly”. It is easy to take a commemorative photo, and the aim was to let tourists and foreigners know at a glance what Shizuoka is like. The Shizuoka Model Teaching Material Cooperative (Chairman, Shunsaku Tamiya, Chairman of Tamiya) also cooperated in the design.

The monuments located at Twin Messe Shizuoka in Suruga Ward and the south exit of JR Shizuoka Station, where the largest model exhibition in Japan, “Shizuoka Hobby Show,” will be held, will feature the characters “Model World Capital” and the city emblem of Shizuoka City. It was. In front of the station, an illustration drawn by Eiji Shimamura, who is known for the design of the plastic model box, is also attached. In front of the main building of the city hall, with the cooperation of Japan Post, the posts that can actually be used are expressed in the “before assembly” state.

In the future, he wants to cooperate with private companies to increase the number of plastic monuments that express products and corporate images. Mayor Nobuhiro Tanabe said at a press conference, “It’s better to have more monuments. I hope the company will have a win-win relationship that will attract customers.”
