Arcade Japan would not be possible without the arcade gaming community we cater for, many of whom we consider friends.

That being the case, here are links to some of the best arcade sites and resources on the web. If you have a site you think would be of interest to other users, then why not Contact Us and we'll add it to this list!

Arcade Otaku Arcade Otaku is a great site dedicated primarily to Japanese "Candy" cabs, which has a very active, welcoming forum and an extensive Wiki resource.
