the most surreal experience: pachinko

Tokyo is not merely visual, its sounds are equally special: e.g. a pachinko (comparable to pinball) parlour is I think one of the most surreal experiences...smoke-filled, extremely loud, crowded place, where no one talks..but are immersed in the game. if you listen for a minute, the sounds of the multitude of flippers and the clattering balls suddenly start to feel like a chant.
