Japan's craziest, most terrifying video game arcade is going out of business
soranews24.com -- Oct 16
Warehouse Kawasaki is like nowhere else in the video game industry, and if you want to see it for yourself, you’ll have to move fast.

Warehouse Kawasaki is a legendary video game arcade in the city of Kawasaki, Tokyo’s neighbor to the south. Entering the building looks like you’re stepping into a sci-fi horror murder factory, but as you’ll see if you’re brave enough to watch this eerie video to the end, once you’re inside, you won’t be murdered by biomechanical demonic computers, but instead will have access to a whole bunch of coin-op video games, with a strong emphasis on retro titles.

While Warehouse Kawasaki might look like the result of years and years of neglect, the aesthetic is entirely intentional. Located just about where the heavy pedestrian traffic from nearby Kawasaki Station dries up, the multi-story building originally housed an electronics and appliance store, but after the shop closed down in the mid-2000s, Warehouse moved in.
