Tokyo-based Landon says this is the first time he's been this blown away by an arcade in Japan. "It's 18 years old and up, extremely dark and dirty, and basically looks like what an arcade would if it were in Silent Hill," Landon explains. Dubbed Anata no Warehouse (Your Warehouse), the arcade features eight story of dark, dank gaming.

"They also cater to gamers sooooo well for an eight story arcade," Landon adds. For example, the very spacious arcade not only provides good air conditioning, but also towels for the DDR players. Clean towels, hopefully!

Wow Brian, I send this to you a like 6 weeks ago asking if you wanted me to write up proper impressions and send more pics before posting about this, no reply from you, and then you go and post it? How DARE you :P

Anyway, for people who wanna know how to get there, it's kinda hard to explain. It's about a 10 minute walk from Kawasaki station in Kawasaki city (close to Tokyo and Yokohama).

Apparently this is the official website:

[www.warehouse.co.jp]

At least, that's what I got when I ran a search.. and this is the only Kawasaki address listed:

神奈川県川崎市川崎区日進町3-7

(Kanagawa-ken, Kawasaki-shi, Kawasaki-ku, 日進町3-7)

If anyone is visiting Japan or is already in Japan and wants me to guide them, I'd totally be up for it! Just send me a message on my profile or something.

Also, I was reading some of the comments, and the whole "backstreets of China" theme isn't really racist.. I should have said it's done up like the DIRTY backstreets of China. I dunno.

Anyway, this is the craziest arcade I've been to in Japan. And I go to a LOT of arcades.
