Golden Week in Japan begins on Saturday, April 29 through Sunday, May 7 in 2017. Most people are going on vacation. Shops will likely not be shipping, so expect a small delay until May 8, 2017. Tokusatsu news will likely slow down as well.
If you are in Japan for Golden Week, there are a few tokusatsu related events happening. This list will be updated if new events are discovered:
Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Stage Event to Be Held During Golden Week
A special event featuring the cast of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid will be held at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa Banquet Hall from May 3-4, 2017. May 3rd is “Bugster Night” and May 4th is “Kamen Rider Night”.
