Japan’s Pachinko Obesession

If you ever had the pleasure of visiting Japan you’ll will recognise the sound of Pachinko instantly.
Thousands of metal balls falling through the machines makes a very distinct sound and the Japanese used to be obsessed by it.

Japan's Pachinko Obesession

A Dynam Pachinko parlour is seen at dusk in Honjo, north of Tokyo. Japan’s once-booming pachinko industry, grappling with a greying customer base and the threat of new competition from casinos, is adopting a softer touch and smoke-free zones to lure a new generation of players, particularly women. Pachinko, a modified version of pinball, is a fading national obsession, with about 12,000 parlours nation-wide and one in thirteen people playing the game. But that figure is declining as the population shrinks and younger people prefer games on their mobile phones. Picture taken August 4, 2014. REUTERS/Issei Kato (JAPAN – Tags: SOCIETY BUSINESS)

Sydney’s Doll Hospital

Opened in 1913, Sydney’s Doll Hospital has worked on millions of dolls, teddy bears and other toys. Behind a toy shop on a busy suburban street in Sydney’s south, “doll surgeons” transplant fingers, toes and heads, and repair broken eye sockets in dolls who were the victim of a childhood tantrum or sibling rivalry, sometimes decades ago.

Athens Olympic Venues 10 Years On

In 2004 Athens hosted the Olympic Games.
Billions were spent on making them memorable and worthy of the original Olympics, which were hosted in Greece thousands of years ago.
In 2014 most of the Olympic venues are in a serious state of decay and lay dorment, waiting for someone to make proper use of them.
But Greece has run out of money and it’s Olympic Games legacy is rotting before their very eyes.
Shouldn’t the IOC make sure billions of taxpayer money doesn’t go to waste once the party leaves town?
