OKURA HOLDINGS LIMITED

Corporate Information

About Us

Our Group is a pachinko hall operator in Japan. As at 16th April 2018, we have 18 pachinko halls, with a particular focus in the Kyushu region.

Our customers come to our halls to play pachinko and pachislot games, one of the most popular forms of entertainment for adults in Japan.

We opened our first pachinko hall in Nagasaki in 1968, in which our headquarters has since been located.
Building on our success in the Kyushu region, we expanded into the Kanto region in 2003, the Kansai region in 2012 and the Chugoku region in 2016.

We intend to further expand our geographic coverage and eventually become a nationwide pachinko hall operator in Japan.
