We did this escape room just the two of us, and it was absolutely fine (bigger group would also work fine as there were many moments in which we were looking at different things, so you’re not necessarily all “stuck” looking at one single puzzle/clue...More

I did this escape room together with my girlfriend when we were visiting Osaka as we wanted to try one in Japan. It's a well-designed room with puzzles which are logical and not too demanding. We had a minor hiccup with a sensor not registering...More

Great support for foreigners in English in a Japanese themed setting. The escape room had us thinking and working together and was a great way to take a break from the heat. We were able to make a booking the day of.

We were met up by the friendliest organizer you can imagine. He gave us a short introduction to the room as well as a bit of back-story to tie in with its theme. The room itself requires zero knowledge of japanese. The decor and feel...More
