READ WHAT OUR SATISFIED CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT US
Great day out with the Mrs. The game really exposed our individual strengths and weaknesses, proving we are a good team/couple. Though we failed... in a super fun way. We will be back!
As two escape game lovers (including one French Escape Hunt Game Master), we definitely had to come and try NAZOBAKO Tokyo once. And it was sure really cool! The Game Masters are really nice and English friendly. Their explanations are really clear, so you don't need to worry if you're not talking any Japanese. The place is easy to find and really clean.
I went with colleges from the office. It was our first time in an escape room for most of us. I don't remember when it was the last time I had so much fun. It was really great experience. We had to squish our brains to solve the puzzles and escape. Also, the stuff was very friendly.
Samurai Espionage Rocks! Loved the Escape room experience. Challenging puzzle that required physical exertion therefore teamwork is a must. The room was very rewarding for those who seek an escape room with a highly unique Japanese theme. Will be back to try Zen Garden next!
Really good. Rooms are very well done. 1 hour per room. Not as technologically advanced as other escape rooms I've been to in other countries, and this is surprising since it's what Japan is known for. But I guess they make up for it with their traditional puzzle solving culture.
My husband and I went there for our anniversary and we had a good time. We were greeted right away and they provided excellent service. We also received a drink and snacks afterwards along with pictures taken. We played the runaway bride room and it was pretty tough. I would definitely go back to play the other rooms.
A great example of how a tiny space can still be a challenging, immersive, and well done escape room. My husband and I did the Samurai Espionage and thought it was such a fun, challenging room, even with more traditional lock/key puzzles. English is available so that helped and they even serve tea once you're done playing so you can quietly go over your experience.
Guillaume was our play host and he did a wonderful job giving us just enough but not too many clues. Easy to get to- convenient to Asakusa and Tawaramachi subway station- just few minute walk. Really challenging and fun- both Samurai and Zen room. Especially love the japanese themes to both. A great way to spend time. Highly recommend it. Even offered free refreshments and snacks.
Me and my son went to the Zen room and enjoyed the experience as our first escape room ever. A little difficult at first but could proceed with hints. My 12-year old wanted more so we went back after lunch for the samurai room. Clean facilities and friendly staff.
This was such a great place to go on a snowy day!! Staff were lovely and game master of the game was super friendly and helpful in a cryptic way. Would definitely recommend especially on a rainy/snowy day. Experience of the room was fun and a little hard but had a great time, we tried the Samuri one!
Adventure for the whole family! We are a family of 5 (14, 12, and 8..plus mom and dad!). We made the reservation online for the Christmas themed room.
Getting there is pretty easy but there is some construction going on around the train station so it can get a bit confusing and the sign for "Nazobako Tokyo" is easy to miss, so be on the look out. Once we arrived with our reservation information we were given our Sherlock Holmes detective wear and had a family picture. Our guide spoke fluent English and was very thorough. Once in the room, the entire family participated and we escape with 1 minute to spare. We did have to ask for 2 clues (which take away a minute) but it was a great time and we will definitely do it again! Good luck!!!
After we got done eating okonomiyaki down the street...we headed here. There were a few groups there and I'd suggest making a reservation next time but the facility was clean. It wasn't too hard to find. It was on the 6th Floor As soon as we went in we got warm greetings from everyone and we got to pick from 1 of 3 rooms to play. The kids picked Zen and then we paid and got at it It was our 1st time doing it so it was fun and exciting. Some of the puzzles weren't too tough but we did need to call on a hint from our game master (which we lost a minute). We did finish within our allotted 60 mins and it was fun. A gentleman named Victor helped us there and was extremely friendly! We liked it so much we went back a second time and did Samurai which was a bit more challenging!
Ask anyone. I've always wanted to go to an Escape Room. It's one of my favorite conversation starters (though it generally doesn't lead to any conversation, because apparently most people also have not been to an Escape Room and are not necessarily interested in trying one out). The Asakusa Escape Room was my first, so I don't have anything to compare it to other than the plethora of Escape Room games I've played on my iPhone. And let me just say that this experience was about a million times better. I went here as part of a Yelp event, so I didn't get a chance to choose which room I'd be in. I ended up doing the runaway bride one, which, without giving too much away, involves a lot of locks. I'm proud to say that my team and I solved the mystery with no hints and a minute to spare! So I was pretty proud. The puzzles were challenging, but not impossibly difficult. In fact, I wish that they were a bit more challenging or utilized the all of the rooms better. However, it was still a lot of fun. I recommend going with a smaller group, because it's just more fun that way (everyone kind of working on their own thing). The rooms are also kind of tiny so a big group may have some trouble maneuvering. One thing I was disappointed with was that the runaway bride was described as 1920's Asakusa, which made me really excited... But looking at the room and scenario, it didn't seem that way at all. I would not have guessed that to be the theme setting at all. It also is a bit pricey, but it's a great experience! Plus it's in English and Japanese, so if you're a native English speaker and really want to challenge your Japanese ability... Well.... good luck 🙂
If you are anything like me and you love escape games this is definitely the place for you!
They have three rooms you can solve, all at 60min each. I suggest you solve it faster 😉 I did the Zen room and the Samurai room. The third room is called The Runaway Bride. You can be up to 5 people in a room and they have two of each room. This makes it a great place to go with a group of friends on a day off or just to wind down after work. It's also a great place to strengthen your teamwork with your colleagues or just to go and take your mind of things. You will have a game master following your progress so if you get stuck somewhere you may ask for a hint (don't worry, they are very cryptic!). You can also race if you have a group and you do the same room at the same time. Unlike the Nazotiki cafe I have previously reviewed this escape game is more interactive and physical. You're have to physically move things around to find your clues to solve the puzzle.
No Japanese skill is required! They provide the rooms in Japanese and English but mostly there is no text in the room itself. Once you're e finished the room they give you tea or coffee and some snacks! And you can take a fun picture as memory! I am looking forward to go back there and solve the last room soon. You should go too! Enjoy!
