In September this year, the Japan Retrogame Association (JARGA) held the first (hopefully, of many), “Retrogame Museum Project Exhibition” outside Osaka in a small town in the countryside called Yamanakadani .

Fairly non-descript building…but what’s inside?

The building was (is?) apparently haunted and so was fairly cheap to buy the owner, Ishii Yutaka told me. He’s spent the last year or so doing it up and turning it into a mini-museum!

The left half of the building, exhibits a vast collection of consoles from as early as 1977~78, through to more modern consoles (well, up to about the Playstation 2).

This Atari 7800 was connected up to a projector displaying on the far wall, and I had a quick game of Asteroids on it.

I saw one of these TV Game 15‘s from Nintendo at a flea market a few years back, but unfortunately I didn’t have the ¥6000 they were asking for it at the time.
