Part 2: From Inside a Real Japanese Game Center! Treats & Games Edition
Continuing from last time is our guide to Japanese game centers. I hope you’ll have fun getting yummy treats and games!
1. Japanese Snacks
“Takenoko no Sato” & “Kinoko no Yama”
たけのこの里 & きのこの山
Tons of “Takenoko no Sato” and “Kinoko no Yama”. Japanese are split into two factions when it comes to these. “Takenoko no Sato” might be better. But which side are you on? Better try them and see!
Bourbon Petit Series
These Bourbon Petit are placed in an easy-to-get spot. There’s over 20 varieties of this series and they’re bite-sized.
“Kaki no Tane”
“Kaki no Tane” are long-time sellers. They got their name from the fact that they look like persimmon (kaki) seeds (tane). They’re spicy. There’s quite a lot in a bottle…
Yocchan is a cheap sweet that brings back lots of memories for me. It’s pickled squid. I LOVE it!
2. Japanese Candies
Normally you can get these by paying a fee at a crane game but occasionally there are places like this. You get to take all the candy you want! I just came to look but there’s so many. They have plum, matcha, daifuku and rare flavors. Even tomato! (Technically it says take up to 5 but I got way more. Shh!)
3. Playing Games
Everyone shares the same screen and competitive games at the same time. This guy may be using a manga café as a hotel. You can see changes of clothes inside his bag lol
Real Life Simulations
A soccer game with koi fish as the players.
A fishing simulation. You use the stick provided and go virtual fishing. Take a look at that big catfish~~~
Taiko no Tatsujin
Taiko Master (Taiko no Tatsujin) is also famous overseas.[margin_50b]
God Performance (The Top Player in Akihabara)
