Break Stuff: Piat Thor

While walking through Namba, Osaka with a friend I saw a sign. It was a sign for something I had always wanted to do. At Piat Thor (ピアットトーラー) you can purchase plates and break them by throwing them against a wall. The premise is you write things you dislike on the plates with a marker and by throwing the plate and breaking it, you get ride of that thing in your life. Additionally on the last plate you break, you write a wish you hope to come true.  
The one catch with both types of plates, is you have to break it on the first throw for the wish to be granted. The owner also offers air soft guns and targets as well. Packages start at 1000 yen for 5 plates. The most expensive package is around 7000 yen for 100 plates. You can also do mixed plate and airsoft packages. 

For saftey you wear a jacket, mask, and gloves. On the wall there are concrete slabs that you throw the plates against.
 The broken plates fall to the bottom or you can recover a plate that did not break when you threw it.
The owner was really nice and of all the things I've spent money on, this one was well worth it.
