What you need to bring
You don't need to bring anything.
I've always wondered about Japanese pachinko but it seemed a bit intimating to just walk into a pachinko parlour not knowing how to play. Now I know.
The pachinko class was lots of fun and informative. The host was fantastic, very easy to understand and friendly.
Really good fun experience
This was a really fun experience. Want to know whats going on when you walk past the sliding doors and this massive noise comes from the pachinko places? These guys taught us how to play, load up a card (which was included in the booking fee so wasn't extra to play) and then hung around while we played in case we had questions. If you have a spare couple of hours this was a great activity.
Very fun way to learn japan´s craziest game! :D
We had a very good time. Three motivated, friendly girls explained us pachinko. After a few, very easy to understand explenations, we were ready for our first play on a test machine :) Then we went to a pachinko hall and played our first real games. It really was fun, and i now understand why it is so popular in japan! We can recommand it, if you are looking for a fun way to understand pachinko.
