Are there any Japanese Zero's still flying?

Can anyone give me some advice as to what airshows or collections still have flyable Mitsubishi Zero's, that one could possibly see in a public forum? - thanks.

I think a show at Chino would be your best bet.

There is one owned by a man at Urbana, Illinois. He also has a flyable P-40.
Thanks for your input

How many of those 3 have their original engine? I seem to remember at least 1 had an American engine installed.
