    Staff will help you to find the perfect fit for you!

If you own an airgun (airsoft gun), you can bring it to the shooting range and use it there. Or you can also choose a plan including one type of airgun. But if you are new to airsoft sports, the by far best option is the special “Omakase Shooting Course Plan”. This plan is available on weekdays only, but you get to try every type of airgun you like while the pricing is also very reasonable. Of course, advanced players may also choose this plan.

“TARGET-1” has three ranges with different distances. 5m, 10m, and one amazing 15m range!

The teacher will show beginners how to use the gear. We I visited the shooting range, my teacher used pictures to show me what I should see when aiming at the target, which was very helpful and easy to understand. When I aimed at the target and shot for the first time, it was a hit! What a wonderful feeling!“TARGET-1” is a big recommendation for groups of friends or couples, because you can play against each other. I found out that learning how to use air guns improves your concentration and muscles. These guys are heavy!

  • Browsing through the games corner, I found a lot of games I played (or wanted to play) when I was a child. The store’s homepage declares the shop as the “No.1 in retro game inventory in Japan!”. I guess, that's true. It's a lot of fun to stroll around the shelves and travel back into your childhood!

On the 5th floor of the building, you’ll find a true Japanese game center with a lot of retro arcade games. Many games can be played by two people, starting from 100 yen per play, so bring your friends and family! For those who love games, especially those who want to play or buy nostalgic titles, Akihabara’s “Super Potato” is a gamer’s heaven where you can spend several hours browsing and playing games.

Look at this row of arcade games!

If you want to rediscover the fun of retro games, you should visit "Super Potato Akihabara"!
