Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
2016 was the year when virtual reality devices and games really hit the big time, with a slew of VR-related events, businesses, games and movies springing up in Tokyo and elsewhere. By putting on one of those futuristic-looking head-mounted displays (HMDs), you can now visit ancient Egypt, travel through space or do the para-para at a virtual idol's concert without leaving your couch.
But as getting your own Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or PlayStation VR still means making a rather considerable investment, you might want to try before you buy. So we've put together a quick list of nine Tokyo spots where you can experience a virtual world without having to shell out the big bucks – just note that most of them require visitors to have at least some Japanese language ability.
