Our Business


Amusement Business

NIRAKU CORPORATION is our principal operating subsidiary, which is primarily engaged in the operation and management of pachinko halls. NIRAKU CORPORATION also operates a Spanish restaurant franchise in Tokyo under the brand “LIZARRAN” and a hotel above one of our pachinko hall in Koriyama City, Fukushima Prefecture, both of which are our ancillary business and are insignificant when compared to our business and financial position as a whole.

Pachinko Hall Business

Pachinko is one of the most popular forms of entertainment in Japan. Pachinko has a long history and was first developed as a children’s game, and evolved into an adult pastime. Recently with significant changes and improvements to the machines, as at the end of 2014, there were approximately 4,000 pachinko hall operators in Japan, offering a wide variety of pachinko and pachislot games.

We were the fourth largest pachinko hall operator in Japan and the largest pachinko hall operator in Fukushima in 2013, according to the Entertainment Business Institute. We focus all our operations in Northeast Honshu, especially Fukushima, Tokyo and their neighbouring and conjoining prefectures.

About Pachinko

Pachinko is one of the most popular forms of entertainment for adults in Japan and has a long history, dating back to the early twentieth century.

Pachinko is similar in appearance to a pinball machine and is played by firing pachinko balls in rapid succession into a playing field, with the aim of firing them into designated pockets that release bonus pachinko balls.

Pachislot is similar in appearance to a traditional slot machine and is played by inserting pachislot tokens to spin its image reels, with the aim of stopping the reels at a winning matching combination, which will release bonus pachislot tokens.

Generally, players aim to collect the most number of balls and tokens, which can either be saved for subsequent visits, or more notably, exchanged for prizes.

We entered into this franchise agreement in order to diversify our business and because our Directors viewed this as a sound business opportunity.
