Osaka Aquarium Game Centre

One of the popular tourist (and local) attractions in Osaka is the Osaka Aquarium (Kaiyukan) and the area around it, which also hosts a Big Wheel, Legoland Osaka, some great tourist souvenir shops and a Sega Arcade.

The arcade is not amazing but there are some interesting finds in there.
It covers 2 floors, the upper floor containing the more popular ufo catchers, and the bigger arcade cabs, while downstairs has the older pachinko and game machines with a lot of kids games.
