Fans of Tomohisa Yamashita (NEWS) will have the chance to take a photo with a life-sized figure of the star in Tokyo this weekend.

In a collaborative project between Yamashita’s upcoming film “あしたのジョー (Ashita no Joe)” and Toshiba’s dynabook laptop computers, the figurine will go on display at Akasaka Sacas.

Go to the following website for details: http://dynabook.com/pc/1-oku/joe/#/eventinfo/

Or, if your Japanese is not too good, I have translated the details below:

(gates open from 9:00am)

Admission: Free, but number of visitors will be limited to the first 540 people on December 18, and 480 people on December 19.

Note that other than the limited number photo event, visitors to Akasaka Sacas can also see the figure from behind the stage, although photography here will be prohibited.
