The 2nd floor is this floor in the video, which is half shm’up games (and i mean LOTS of shm’up games …

    surprisingly, it wasn’t in many akihabara arcades: drummania outnumbered it like 3 to 1 for arcades it was in, and taiko outnumbered them both combined like 2 to 1.

    you should know at least rudimentary japanese, in terms of being able to read it and speak it, before you go: it’ll make it a lot easier for you to get around, find things, and much more will be available to you.

    there were girls in that arcade. at least a good 10 or so per floor, coming with their boyfriends or by themselves, in all different fashions and etc.

    I noticed that too, a lot of those people where dressed like they had just came from the office. Another observation is that there wasn’t a girl in sight, well I guess girls aren’t into that stuff as much or at all.
    Did they have Pachinko, SHINNY LITTLE SILVER BALLS, people get like obsessed with playing that game. I want to go there, it seemed pretty loud in there. I wonder what their electrical bill is. XP

    This reminds me SOOOOO much of when I lived in Japan. I lived in a little AFB called Yokota and we had a similar arcade called round 1. All the same games, just smaller. Good times.
