My blog died, so now this is just a static HTML page. I use it to track offline fighting game events going on in or around Tokyo that I know about.

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.

This isn't a comprehensive list, but feel free to contact me if you want me to add anything.

Also, Check out UltraDavid's Awesome Google Docs Spreadsheet of locals.

Very generally:

The arcade scene is fading, sadly. You might want to check out
