The Tokyo Game Show, or TGS, is an annual gaming exposition held in Tokyo, Japan. It's pretty much the Japanese E3, except for the kick-ass fact that the last two days of the expo are open to the general public, not just industry insiders. 2007 marked the first year that the Tokyo Game Show was held for four consecutive days. This was done to give more time to the business trade show aspects of the event. The very first years TGS was held biannually, once in the spring and then again in the fall. Holding two events a year ended in 2001 and ever since TGS has been an annual event.
Nintendo tends not to participate heavily in TGS, though, at times they have had people like Satoru Iwata give speeches. In the past Nintendo has sometimes put on their own convention, Nintendo SpaceWorld.
