About this Item

146 pages, illustrated. "Why do the Japanese love playing pachinko to such an extent? What is its allure that encourages 30 million Japanese fans to spend astounding sums of money on it? It must appear as a peculiar social phenomenon to overseas' readers, as even the Japanese themselves do not know the answers to the above questions. Pachinko is the pinball-like game that was introduced into Japan in 1945 as a form of entertainment for the Allied Forces and became a popular form of gambling once cigarettes- scarce in post-war Japan- began to be used as prizes." FINE HARDCOVER, FINE- DUST JACKET. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 020205
