Recently on NicoNico Douga (via Kotaku Japan), one user showed how a storage room had been converted into a retro Japanese arcade, complete with refurbished cabinets, old game mags, a drink machine, a change machine, and even those crappy metal ashtrays you find in Japanese game centers. The recreation even uses black lighting for that arcade feel.

There's an array of games on display, with lots of shooters, like DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou, ESP Ra.De., RayStorm, and Gradius.
