EST Shibuya Bowling and Game Center – Glow In The Dark Bowling
When you first arrive at the building go down the stairs to B1. B1 is the reception and you must sign-up, pay, and get a waiting number. Make sure to let reception know if you want glowing and bumpers or not when you sign-up. Not all lanes have bumper capability so you may need to wait if you don’t have a reservation. Once your number is called you will be told which floor and lane number to proceed. We waited on a Thursday night for 35 mins for glow-in-the-dark & bumpers. Bowling for one hour is 500-600 JPY per person depending on day and time, also an additional 300 JPY for shoe rental. Shoes are available from size 16 (age 3-4) to 32 (size 13.5 US size). Shoe dispensing machines are on each bowling floors- for very small or very large sizes you have to ask the desk person on each floor.
If you have a group, it is best to make a reservation. You can reserve lanes for five people for one hour by calling in advance. All information and the reservation phone number are here. Sorry, all info is in Japanese.
