SBP is getting popular both locally and internationally.  From time to time I could see both local and international visitors of different ages.

I also joined the monthly pinball tournament for September. Unfortunately, I was out in the first round.

As usual, I could always enjoy good food around the Shinsaibashi area.   I have never been disappointed with it.

Although the total number of games is now over 100, some new ones are still coming.   As I understand it they include Ghostbusters, Transformers and The Big Lebowski.
