Basketball is nowhere as big a sport in Taiwan as it is in the United States. Instead of shooting hoops in a court with a real basketball, many players in Japan have relegated themselves to shooting hoops at a local arcade. The “sport” has become something of a national pastime for the Taiwanese.

A video shows the game in action as a prodigy of this “sport” as he shoots balls into a stationary, and then moving hoop (you’ll see what I mean) to earn the most number of balls thrown before the time limit is up.

Perhaps the popularity of the game can only be attributed to the lack of space available to build basketball courts on the small Taiwanese island.
