3331 Arts Chiyoda
(This is the same location as last year!)

The event will be held in a hall roughly the area of medium-sized European demoparties. Needless to say, the partyplace features a massive screen for showing productions. Also, you are welcome to bring food and drinks from outside, so you can enjoy demos while having, and maybe sharing, delicacies. (That being said this is a demoparty, not a cooking party, so please don't bring your stove or microwave. :) )
