6 floors of gaming mayhem from prize machines to VR. Used to have a pleothra of 80’s arcade games but those are now replaced with brand new hit games. Do not miss the VR area at the 6th floor!

Had fun playing the arcades. Neat to see multiple floors of arcades, but found there could be some more variety. Was cool to watch some of the locals play as well.

No you can use 100 yen coins or 500 yen coins to pkay. There is always a money changer ( from paper money to coins) in these game centers in japan
