Experiencing downtown Hong Kong in Tokyo for free!

Looking for a gaming arcade with a twist? Kawasaki Warehouse is a fascinating complex, built to look like the famous Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong. It’s also a great place to take some free pics or have a bit of fun. The several floors have everything from pool tables, to a net cafe, to a collection of classic gaming machines to try out.

The entrance and complex design help to make the building stand out from the rest. Just head to the location on the map below and you should be fine! After proceeding though the slightly scary, massive sliding doors, you’ll enter a red chamber. The room also has the sounds of Kowloon to add to the atmosphere! It’s a dark and dingy place…

Inside you can spend a good amount of free time exploring the complex and its recreations of Kowloon. It has all the cluttered ghetto feel of Kowloon, and looks just as grimy. It really is a mystery why they chose this theme, but this is Japan!

What could be down here?
