Nishijin Palace Bowl will close at the end of March 2022. The operating company, Nishitetsu, explained on May 13 that the number of visitors to the recreation facility, which opened in 1972, has declined in recent years. Challenges related to the pandemic and aging of the facilities accelerated the decision to shut it down. The operation of restaurants in the building will continue for the time being.
