  • Literally. Nothing to see except a plaque. Only the truest diehard may want to come for a photo-op. Otherwise, kind of pointless.  more »
  • This is the building where Nintendo started working and the two license plates are remembered. It is neither a museum nor a shop: only two plaques. All video game fans have to go through it. To reach it I recommend to take the walk along the river, really characteristic.

  • If you're an advent gaming fan you'll have to give this place a visit. There are no tours or people that go in or out of this old Karuta building. It's neat to see this OG building but there is not much else to do.
  • Give It a try. The old NINTENDO Building where All began... Once the made game cards. Incredibile.
  • An essential piece of gaming history and actually a little more interesting than the current Nintendo building. Two signs, one in English and one around the corner in Japanese. Easy to find.
  • Many great childhood memories came from this place and what they created!!! Thank you Super Mario!!!
  • As a historian I was very excited to find out that my hotel in Kyoto was next to this building. The building itself is very well-maintained, a fact that proves how important history is to the Japanese people.
