VIDEO| 'Geesen' - game arcades in Japan

Stripes Okinawa

From Hokkaido to Okinawa, locals love to get their game on and arcades offer many opportunities to do so. Geesen offer popular video games, RPG games, photo booths, UFO catchers, and more! Most games are only 100 yen and the industry has maintained a ‘one-coin’ policy for over 30 years. Some games are two coins, however, due to inflation. Although home consoles and mobile games are changing the industry, arcades are still beloved by Japanese and those visiting the country. Try your luck at any of the game centers you’re sure to come across in your travels around Japan.
