Welcome to Ceatec 2009
Signs at the entrance to the Makuhari Messe convention center announce that we have indeed arrived at Ceatec 2009 in Chiba, Japan, near Tokyo.
The show, which started Tuesday and runs through the weekend, seems smaller than in years past (though there's no official count of attendance yet). The smaller crowd could be due to the sluggish economy and/or the inclement weather Tokyo's been having: it hasn't stopped raining since the show began and there's a typhoon forecast to hit the area Thursday.
