Are you a motorcycle fan in Japan? If so, 2022 is off to a great start, especially if you like going to motorcycle shows to see the latest and greatest bikes that OEMs have to show you. It’s February 2022 right now, but not one, not two, but three major bike shows are currently scheduled in Japan in the next two months.
The first is the 38th Annual Osaka Motorcycle Show, which runs for three days, March 19-21, 2022. Just like many other events over the past two years, the 2020 and 2021 Osaka Motorcycle Shows (which were the 36th and 37th editions, respectively) have unfortunately been canceled due to the global pandemic. If there is still some time between now and the end of March, if all goes according to plan, the 2022 show should mark a triumphant return for motorcycle enthusiasts in the region.
The second major Japanese motorcycle show that is back on the calendar for 2022 will be the 49th annual Tokyo Motorcycle Show. From March 25-27, the show will welcome enthusiasts of all ages to come and experience all the latest 2022 models. This show has also been canceled for the past two years, but looks forward to welcoming visitors back to the nation’s capital. .
As Osaka and Tokyo mark a return to established shows, the Nagoya Motorcycle Show will celebrate its first-ever appearance in 2022. From April 8-10, it is currently scheduled to take place at the Aichi Sky Expo center, gracing the Nagoya area. with his presence for the first time.
As you’d expect, the kinds of pandemic mitigations we’ve grown accustomed to will be in place for all three events. Online ticket presales are already underway, with staggered entries, social distancing, masks, large amounts of hand sanitizer and high levels of constant cleaning planned to keep guests and exhibitors safe.
Same day tickets may not be sold out in some instances, so you will need to purchase tickets in advance through the recommended online methods for your chosen event. High school students and young children may qualify for discounted or free admission, and advance ticket prices may also be discounted for other attendees. We’ll include links to the websites of all three shows in our sources, so you can find more information and/or buy tickets if you want to attend.
