Yup, been there 2 years ago, it's really something.

But i read somewhere that it's going to close it's doors soon.

The video says it closed last month :(

It was one of the arcades on my list for when I finally get to Japan, shame it's gone, although I think the decor might have creeped the Mrs. out a bit too much :lol:

Yes, it's certainly one of the best I have visited - being a modern building there was quite a bit of open space in the main areas that created a really chilled out vibe.

Although not shown in the video, they had multiple machines for all the latest releases and a interesting classics selection.

Went to Tokyo both in 2016 and 17, I guess I should've visited them. Oh well...

Really cool place but many cabs had poor maintained screens/controls.

I guess part of the attraction was that it was a 'destination' with so much in one place.

Taito Hey or Try Tower are just as interesting, so don't feel that you missed out.

I personally like the charm of small independent arcades just as much tbh

Japan sure is fast about demolishing unused buildings in urban areas.

I got a chance to go a few weeks before closing... really awesome place, and appreciated the deluxe Sega cabs (Outrun & Space Harrier!).

The candies on the main floor were... not well maintained, lol. The retro cabs upstairs definitiely were!
