Gyoza Stadium

3-1-3 Higashi Ikebukuro , Namco Namjatown, Sunshine City
Tokyo , Japan
81 3 5950-0765

Located inside the indoor mulit-attraction extravaganza called Namjatown, the stadium's riotous kitschy sprawl is part pinball-like pachinko parlor, part nostalgia ride through 50's Japan. Socialist-realist portraits of famed gyoza chefs from various prefectures decorated faux-rustic booths hawking their creations: delicate fried shrimp and shiso-leaf pouches; nouvelle multicolored gyoza with black-vinegar dipping sauce; fat Okinawan pork dumplings in spicy oil.
