April 5, 2021: Nakake-Cho(In front of Pachinko Salon)
On the day when stronger measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus started in Sendai, the number of people in front of a pachinko salon on Nakake street was clearly less than March 25, the day when the shorten business hours were required by the local government. Like March 25, some Izakaya bars broadcasted invitation messeages repeatedly, but no people went into those bars. Regarding the pachinko salons, much more people went out the salons than went in.
