The 2023 International Tokyo Toy Show (東京おもちゃショー2023) is a toy industry trade show that was held June 8 to 11 at Tokyo Big Sight at Ariake, Kōtō, Tokyo. The preceding 2022 event was the first to be held again in a reduced capacity after the two previous years' events had been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[1][2] The 2023 event was co-sponsored by the CoroCoro Spirit Festival (コロコロ魂フェスティバル).

Application period[]

Exhibitors could apply for booth space as of October 4, 2022; the application deadline was on November 25, 2022.[5] The deadline for the Kids Life Zone was on December 23, 2022.[6] Nominations for the 2023 Japan Toy Awards were accepted from the following February until April 3, 2023.[3][7] The finalists were announced on the following April 24th.[8]

There is no admission fee for industry professionals or young children to attend the Tokyo Toy Show. The first two days are typically limited to industry professionals only by invitation, or by completing registration with the Japan Toy Association. Foreign professionals are advised to fill out the entry registration form in advance. The last two days are open to the public, and professionals are advised to conclude their business early as the event has become crowded in the past.[9] For the first time in years, a fee of JP¥ 1,500 was charged to general attendees of junior high school age or older.
