Fantastic photos, thanks so much. And love the non gaming pics too. Yes, might have to convince the other half we have to get to Japan. We have recently been watching a couple of travel shows of Japan so do not think it would take much to tempt her!!!

Although there are LOADS of modern games with their new-fangled cabinets (most accepting a memory card or some such), as I don't partake of modern gaming I stuck solely to the retro. Many 'cades do have No Photo signs; but I took them nonetheless surreptitiously. :) Got more I can upload - just need to dig them out of the hundreds of images taken on my recent jaunt over there.
