This proposal stems from a problem that Japanese people in regions face: there are no options but to hang around to Pachinko hall for fun. The Pachinko industry in Japan is in a challenging situation due to some sanctions from Gov. and global health issues these days. Thus, It is necessary to open a new type of amusement facilities instead for entertaining people in regions. In this project, I propose the conversion of Pachinko hall into e-sport facilities, which has been gaining popularity globally. The installation of e-sport facilities into the local area brings many profits to the table: revitalization, enthusiasm, and civic pride.
