NJPW president Takami Ohbari made a series of announcements prior to today's Best of the Super Juniors event at Korakuen Hall, including a 50th anniversary tour and museum exhibit. 

The anniversary tour will hit Sendai on February 11, 2022, Osaka on February 13, two nights in Hokkaido on February 19 and February 20, then two nights in the Nippon Budokan on March 1 and March 2. 

The NJPW-ism exhibit will run from February 11 to February 27, 2022 at the Tokyo Dome City Gallery AaMo. The exhibit will feature artifacts and items from NJPW history. A pair of Andre the Giant's boots and an autographed Andre hand print were presented as examples of what fans can expect at the museum. 

Ohbari also announced that the January tour will be called New Year's Golden Series, a throwback to a tour name used throughout the 1970s and 1980s. 

Additionally, NJPW will be partnering with 50 different manufacturers to produce new merchandise, with the first presented examples being gaming chairs produced by Contleaks and golf bags made by M.I.N.D.
