A pachinko parlor in Susono, Shizuoka Prefecture, was robbed of 6.3 million yen early Sunday, police said.

According to police, the robbery occurred at around 12:50 a.m. The manager told police he had just closed the establishment and was leaving the second-floor office when he was approached by a knife-wielding man who ordered him back into the office, Fuji TV reported.

The man told him to open the safe and put the money in a bag. He then ran away. The manager was not injured.

The robber is described as being about 170 cms tall and was wearing a black top, cap and white face mask.

It’s not difficult to learn the routines of the pachinko parlors. The would have been using the same closing up routine since they opened.

The pachinkol money are flowing to North Korea.

Of course, a government knows.

This industry is declining by repeated regulation.

This will get real interesting once the casinos with their competing domestic and international crime organizations start syphoning off their profits.

Pfft, learn how to deposit the money from the night before, during the next mid day shift. It's not rocket science.

Six million yen in the safe of a Pachinko parlor does not sound fishy at all. Sounds entirely within what I would expect a casino-like business to have on hand.

Ran away by foot? He could used a taxi with that money.
