Filmmaker Brad Crawford wants to chronicle the past, present and future of the Japanese arcade game scene with a project dubbed 100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience, a lovely looking documentary that needs some financial assistance. Got a few bucks?

If so, you can help fund the rest of 100 Yen, which for now exists as the trailer you see above. Featured in 100 Yen are professional Street Fighter players like Daigo Umehara and Ryan "Gootecks" Guitierrez, Satoshi Numata, a professor of video games at the Osaka Electronic University, and Arcade Mania author Brian Ashcraft (Eh? Never heard of 'im).

Have a burning interest in Japanese arcade games and want to travel to faraway lands with the help of video? Maybe you'll want to help fund the project at IndieGoGo, which is still a few thousand bucks away from meeting its financial goals.

Or maybe you'll just want to watch the 100 Yen trailer to see what a thriving arcade game scene is like.
