Groom Kazuhiro and his bride Yukiko were married today at iconic Tokyo arcade Mikado. As the game center points out, the couple’s first matrimonial quarrel was Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion.
Below are the newlyweds:
The couple reserved the arcade for the ceremony, and Mikado was closed to the outside public until 7pm this evening.
Inside, the red carpet was rolled out between two rows of arcade cabinets running classic fighting games.
Of course, the seats for the wedding were game center stools.
Back in 2014, Mikado announced that, yes, you could get married at the arcade and that renting out the arcade would cost between 250,000 yen ($2,284) and 300,000 yen ($2,741). Then, there are added wedding reception costs, but it’s way cheaper than the average 3,000,000 yen ($27,418) to 3,500,000 yen ($31,988) for a wedding with 70 to 80 guests.
Also, those weddings don’t typically have a bunch of old Street Fighter games.
