Won't Miss #58 - pachinko

I don't play pachinko and, in theory, I don't mind if other people do so. In practice, I hate pachinko parlors. They're always garishly designed and decorated so they're a visual blight. When you walk by them, someone is usually walking in or out and you get a huge blast of obnoxious noise from the machines and lots of stale, disgusting smoke. It's like walking past an ashtray the size of a swimming pool from an olfactory viewpoint. They're also a bit seedy because they are connected to illegal gambling and most of the people wasting their days in them aren't the creme de la creme of the citizenry.

I won't miss pachinko parlors.

  1. I also hate the fact that so many of these things go belly up, leaving a huge ugly garish building that's not good for anything but Pachinko. Eyesores waiting to happen.
