Sin City

Filed under: Inaka Life — Tags: , , — myyearinjapan @ 9:54 am

In between the convenience store and the supermarket, about 10 minutes walk from my apartment is the nightlife hub of my little town.

Under the Interchange

Under the highway interchange is all the nighttime entertainment you need. I have yet to enjoy the local nightlife myself, but at least I know where it is if I ever decide to go.

Vixens

The Vixens nightclub looks smaller than my apartment. I've heard that all the 'vixens' who work there are Philipino and speak English well, in addition to speaking Japanese. Foreigner friendly nightclub!

Pachinko parlor

On the other side of the interchange, a pachinko parlor! It's actually one of several on this street. But, as the red sign in the bottom left says, "this store loves this region!" Gambling is technically illegal in Japan, but pachinko uses a loophole in the law to let the Japanese gamble away. Pachinko is like the Japanese version of slots. You buy a bunch of little metal balls and put them into the machine and if they fall into the right slot, you get more metal balls. Then you can go to some other location and exchange the metal balls for money.
