2023 Q1 Fighting Game Events in Tokyo

It has been a while since I've tracked offline fighting game events in Tokyo. With the pandemic starting in 2020, most offline gatherings shut down. At the end of 2022 things were starting to come back. Generally, you can find a Wednesday night fighting game event at eXeField Akiba, the NTT e-Sports facility in the UDX Building. Red Bull Gaming Sphere also hosts events, like Tatakai Tuesdays (GGST, Tekken) that Jiyuna organizes. There is often a Thursday night night SFV event at Red Bull Gaming Sphere as well. Shot Bar Lucy (twitter) often has different events every night of the week, and special events on the weekend.

If you are comfortable with Japanese, Kakuge-checker.com has a comprehensive list of offline, online, and other events going around all over Japan. I don't know how he/they/she does it.
