I am a huge fan of video games. I always have been. I think that some of my first experiences with Japan and Japanese culture came from my obsession with NES and SNES.  The way that things work with me is shelter>games>food>clothes (I feel like a grown-up because I put the shelter part into consideration first before purchasing any games).

 

However! Console gaming doesn’t need to be done at home anymore…Not when you live in Japan.

Here are a few places where you can totally toss a few beers back while playing Duck Hunt with your friends:
