The escape room Nazobako in Asakusa embodies a measured style of game. With a generous time limit and all the clues within arms reach it is a test of pure deductive reasoning. There are three different types of room, each with a unique theme.

The Samurai room is a small space filled to the brim with puzzles. It is based around an assassination attempt against your lord and in contrast to other venues, the Samurai room leads to a conclusion that relies on the player having kept up with the story. It may sound vague, but saying any more would spoil the ending.

These rooms are best played in groups as there is a surprising breadth of puzzles crammed into the space, making the room difficult to complete by yourself.

Luckily there are envelopes containing clues placed next to the puzzles and you can ask staff for some extra pointers if you really have no idea what to do next.
