Family Amusement Arcade
Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA
Holy Shit. Before Japan Arcade closed (November 2013), our owner sold most of the machines. Upon closer inspection of these photos, Family Arcade (LACC) held onto my hand-drawn BISHI BASHI marquee. I always designed those for fun and kill time, but I never knew it was that important.
pretty sure the bottom photo is from Family Fun Arcade back in the day.

OK, this may be the only reason I miss working at Japan Arcade - hearing EUROBEAT / AVEX TRAX / HI-SPEED MUSIC whenever someone played para para, Initial D or other licensed music game. I’m not even joking around, that was theee shit.
