    I went to this parlor a couple years ago and posted some photos here; http://www.pachitalk.com/forums/show...ight=Smartball

    It was a ton of fun and the woman from the article was very friendly and chatted with me quite a while. Mr.G is correct, that is a wall of arrangeball machines, but unfortunately many of them are inoperable. Well worth the time to pop in if you’re in Asakusa while they are open.

    The kids really enjoy the game in the video. Love all the happy faces! It would be awesome to have a couple at a public arcade here.
