Found this pachinko parlor at Shibuya.
Pachinko (パチンコ, Pachinko?) is a Japanese gaming device used for amusement and prizes. Although pachinko machines were originally strictly mechanical, modern pachinko machines are a cross between a pinball machine and a video slot machine. (wiki)
These pachinkos seem to be very addicting as they are as abundant as Mcdonalds stores here in Japan. I think even in the most rural places in Japan, there lies a pachinko parlor around. There are even jobs such as pachinko engineers and journalists.
