New Year Eve part 2: Namja town

Namco Namja Town is an indoor theme park in the Sunshine City shopping complex in east Ikebukuro, Tokyo. The park was opened in 1996 by Namco, a Japanese company best known for producing video games, although the park itself does not focus on those games. Instead, it features themed dining, carnival-style games, a haunted house, and a line of character mascots exclusive to the park.

Ticket vending machine

Entrance ticket @ 300yen ($4), there are other package available, cost around 3000yen. One can play the theme games inside as many time as you like with it, or just buy the 300yen ticket and pay for individual games instead.
