Bowling is one of those great cross-generational activities that family members of all ages can enjoy. North Americans are all familiar with this fun-filled family outing, but if it is new to your family, we encourage you to gather up the troops and head to the nearest lane! Children as young as 3 can enjoy bowling when there are buffer lanes (buffers come up and block the gutters so that it is impossible not to hit at least a few pins). It is also a relatively safe and inexpensive option to send a young group of teens for a night out or for a birthday party. With all kinds of great twists on the original game, from Disco cosmic bowling to black light bowling, the lanes in Tokyo are sure to keep you entertained and amused!
