Taito Station

In Europe almost all arcade stores disappeared at end of the 90s, as video game consoles became as powerful or even more than arcade machines, and started to be affordable to everybody. In Japan the arcades are not in their heyday but they are still quite alive; they are known here as game centers. One of the companies that owns a lot of game centers in Tokyo is Taito (taken over by Square Enix in 2005). If you come to Japan, even if you’re not interested in video games, don’t lose the opportunity to visit one of them; it’s worth it just to see the different kinds of machines and the general atmosphere:
