EBARA GAME CORNER
Report by John
During the Chinese New Year holidays in February 2013, I visited Tokyo with my wife on our leisure trip.
The previous night we might have been too relaxed after an onsen bath in Ooedo-Onsen-Monogatari, because we got up too late and missed complimentary hotel breakfast.
So we directly went to our first pinball location of the day; Ebara Game Corner in Hatanodai (旗の台). Hatanodai is in a remote district outside the main city, so we needed to take a train from Shinagawa (品川) to Oimachi (大井町) first and then transit to another Tokyu Oimachi line.
We already felt very hungry when we arrived in the Hatanodai. We chose a noodle restaurant - Shiryu（紫龍）- for our brunch.
Luckily, it did not disappoint us. In fact, I like having Japanese noodles in Japan because most Japanese-style restaurants in Hong Kong cannot make good quality Japanese noodles, even though their chefs come from Japan.
Ebara Game Corner was a small amusement centre with only one pinball - a Straight Flush (Williams, 1970).
Although its working condition was not very good, I was still excited about it. Why? Because this pinball was made over 43 years ago; I regarded it as an antique rather than a pinball.
I stayed there around thirty minutes and left at noon for my next pinball location; the Taito Inn (タイトーイン) at Kanda (神田).
