Hobbyland Pochi sale event in Yokohama

Hobbyland Pochi, a reseller of second-hand model trains (and the odd bit of miscellaneous paraphenalia) is holding one of its regular sales events (鉄道模型フェスティバル / tetsudou mokei fesutibaru) in Yokohama from Saturday January 10th to Monday January 12th, 2015. This is a holiday weekend.

The event is open from 10am - 6pm on Saturday/Sunday and from 10am to 5pm on Monday. Entrance is free and prices are usually reduced compared to the normal shop price; often there are bargains to be found, especially if you go early.

The Hobbyland Pochi website doesn't seem to carry any information (I'm quoting from the leaflet I was handed earlier this week, pictured below) but it should appear on this page soon.
