That Tsum Tsum scooper machine looks awesome! Must find one on my next trip!

I haven't been inside Sega Joypolis since 1999. I assume it's changed a LOT since then?

When I'm married and have a house instead of an apartment, I dream of having one of those toilets in each of our bathrooms. They say you gotta dream big! :)

You can buy them in the west.

But there may be issues! :p

Although not for the price they say... they are still expensive

There is a lot to check out in the Tokyo Decks area--Joypolis is just one part of it. It's fun to just walk around and window shop, too.

That bowling/billiards game looks like a lot of fun - cool idea.

And yeah...not to sound too weird, but yay for the bonus Asian Smart Toilet shots - you are right in that those toilets are smarter than most people! :lol:

:lmao: :nina: And it's so true...

This was a great trip report! I especially wanted the Mike Wazowski Tsum Tsum! The Japanese arcades are so interesting and I wish the ones in America (at least what I've been to) should take tips from Japan.

Pretty sure this is a Pachislo machine. Basically the slot machine version of a Pachinko machine, they are "legal" in Japan because they are skill stop machines and not regular slot machines. They are actually pretty reasonably priced in the US since there is not a huge used market for them, around $300 - $600 dollars.


I want one of the huge Japanese coin pushers, I could easily see myself wasting hours playing one. But then I have two Pachinko machines and do not spend a lot of time playing them.

Yes, that's exactly what it is. I knew "what" it was, my joke was about the pretty girls in the artwork and wondering what the theme was. Honestly, the caption was just a "joke" and probably not a good one, and certainly not meant to be taken so literally or seriously. :p
