    Tokonatsu 2017 Shop now open!

    Greetings all! By now, regular attendees will be familiar with the idea of Tokonatsu branded T-Shirts and Hoodies going on sell for the given year.

    Toko Highlights 2016: Day One

    Friday is quite often my favourite day at Toko. For one, it’s quieter in the morning, which makes showering that wee but easier. More importantly it’s the day the bulk of people arrive at the social event of the year. I love catching up with a host of amazing, unique people that I don’t get to see at any other time of the year, but I also enjoy watching the reaction of first-time congoers.

Another highlight was…
