Anata No Warehouse: Tokyo’s Craziest Arcade

Posted on

I didn’t set off in an adventure to find the scariest arcade in Japan, but that’s how things ended up.  It was one of the coolest destinations I found on Atlas Obscura and I just happen to like arcades.  I also like not being murdered.

Japanese Maid Cosplay and Ear Cleanings at a Maid Cafe Akihabara

The fluffiest souffle pancakes in the world are in Japan! They have a limited supply and you have to get there early in the morning if you want the best breakfast in Tokyo, but these Japanese fluffy pancakes are well worth the journey.

In Los Angeles, Kang Hodong Baekjeong is my favorite KBBQ place.  That’s favorite KBBQ in the world.  In January 2017, I ate at 678 KBBQ in Sydney, Australia since it’s part of the chain.  Since I’m in Tokyo, I couldn’t miss this opportunity to try the food.
