Located close to Haneda Airport, and as a shinkansen(bullet train) station, Shinagawa is one of Tokyo’s prominent terminal stations.
Many people likely use Shinagawa as a hub for tourism and work.
Since it is not an entertainment district, there are few parlors here, but there are pachinko parlors near Shinagawa station as well.
The first parlor is Hollywood.
Hollywood is one of the largest scale parlors in the city.
The interiors are spacious, with 2 floors. Housed in a 2 story building, the 1st floor area contains the pachinko floor, while the 2nd floor contains the slot machine area.
The most unique feature of this parlor is how clean it is.
A lot of attention is paid to the air conditioning, so you won’t notice any smell of tobacco at all.
The interiors are clean and tidy.
The things that often surprise foreigners when they enter a pachinko parlor are how loud it can be, and the smell of tobacco.
You can get used to the noise quickly, but if the person next to you is smoking, you will notice the smell.
The smell can get so bad that some people even quit playing pachinko for that reason.
But this parlor has so little smell that you’ll never even notice it.
In that sense, this parlor can be said to have a low threshold of difficulty for foreigners.
However, the staff consists of only Japanese persons, and they don’t necessarily show any special generosity towards foreigners.
You can use the free Wi-fi available here. If you want to use it, ask a parlor staff member.
