"Japan is known for its video arcades, from the tiniest little
collections of claw games in basements to entire high-rise buildings
packed with floor after floor of video amusements. On Sunday, November
17, perhaps the most elaborately themed arcade in the country, Anata no
Warehouse in Kawasaki, will shut down for reasons that remain unexplained.
The five-story mega-arcade was the brainchild of Taishiro Hoshino, a set
designer for kabuki theatre, who opened it in 2019. Far from a simple
collection of games, Anata no Warehouse (“Your Warehouse”) was a
recreation of the Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong’s New Territories, a
gravity-defying mega-slum that had captured the world’s imagination
until it was torn down in 1993."
Wow. Wish I could have visited.
