GUNDAM FRONT TOKYO is divided into the free zone and pay zone where you need the ticket to access. The ticket can buy at the informaton counter for 1,200 yen.

However you can also buy the cheaper ticket beforehand via Ticketpia using the ticket machine in 7-Eleven but you need to write your name in Japanese and have the Japanese telephone number.

First we entered the DOME-G where video is screened on the ceiling of the dome. The video is about the introduction of Gundam series with many fighting scene in CG.

DOME-G screens the video 3 times in each hour.  If you come earlier, you may have to wait about 10 – 15 minutes.

There is also the mark for photographer to stand at for taking the best shot. Since there is the time limit, you should be hurry for shooting. After the time’s out. You need to be in the queue again.

However there weren’t much people here on the day we went. We can continue taking a shot with other character too. I also saw some Gundam fangirl choosing their favorite characters and take their photograph alone like they are the real idols.

It’s very hard to shoot it since it’s low light and my RX100 can’t zoom to much.

Next is RX-78-2 Gundam Projection Mapping. It uses the projector to project the color and box of RX-78-2 Gunpla from each series and ages.

You can also take photographs from its cockpit for 2,400 yen by contact the SHOT-G counter on the left.

When you enter the cockpit. The voice of Kira Yamato will guide you to take the photos. They will shot 2 photos. One is a normal photo taken from the camera  in front of the cockpit. Another is a 3D photo taken from camera on the ceiling. You have to wait about half an hour for your photos will be printed and put in the hard paper album.

Because we had to wait for the photos. I walked around the Museum Space. There was the Gundam Unicorn exhibition on the day we went. It’s full of characters sheets, artwork, script and Gunpla from the series. I really loved the artwork of spaceship that come in the large binder folder. It has all details of the ship.

We went to Official Shop where is next to the exit of Museum Space. It sells the special version of Gunpla called  Ver.GFT. The Ver.GFT will add the special parts and decals to make the normal Gunpla its based on look like the one shows here.

Next we will go to the other parts of GUNDAM FRONT TOKYO.
