According to SUUMO (Japan), Toya, a 42-year-old married man had his first gaming cabinet installed 10 years ago but until 2016, he started collecting similar products. Accordingly, his house must be enlarged to have enough space for these gaming cabinets.

It’s not difficult to guess how much he has spent on the gaming cabinets; however, it means nothing to a man with a powerful passion. Toya said that he used to win the SEGA games in 1987. It is obvious that his passion for games has lasted for many years and kept growing up over time.

The shipment fee for two gaming cabinets reached Rs10.6 lakh.

Toya further said that he took part in some online auctions on the Internet. But he just later knew that the sender was in New York City, US at that time. And then, the gaming cabinet was transported across the continent to the West coast, before to Japan. That’s why the shipment fee for the two gaming cabinets reached up to 1.5M Japanese Yen (equivalent to Rs10.6 lakh).
