If you are headed to Japan to see the 2010 Kokufu show starting February 9th and running through February 17th (closed Monday the 15th) there is one more stop you should make the Japan Grand Prix International Orchid Festival being held February 13-21 at the Tokyo Dome.
You can visit the site here. There is an English link at the top right of the page but it only gives a bit of information about the show.
Photos from the 2009 show can be seen here. It takes a bit of time for the flash file to load but the photos will provide you with an insight into how large this show truly is going to be.
The show estimates they will have 3,000 varieties of orchids with over 100,000 plants. That is truly hard to imagine.
Tickets at the door are 2,000円 unless you arrive after 3pm and then the ticket price per person is 1,500円. However, you can do an advance purchase of tickets for 1,800円 or a saving of roughly $2 per person.
If you are there on 2/15, you might just see KJ and me.
