Very nice!
His theories about why board games are more popular than miniatures games is interesting.
The "first" miniatures game board looks quite sophisticated. This had to be going on for a couple of years before these pictures where taken.
And board games tend to be more Western orientated. We tend to play wargames of wars that our ancestors were in. Why would a Japanese gamer be interested in, say, D-Day? Or North Africa? They had no "skin in the game".
He dismisses his own theory that Japan is too "tiny" to comfortably host miniatures games by showing that Hong Kong is smaller and miniatures is big there. Good thing, too, because England is tiny too!
All in all, a great find, Tango-san!
