Pokemon Go Initially Banned From Tourist Attractions – Do You Agree?

by Eric

Unless you’ve been living under a rock recently, you likely know someone or have bumped into someone (literally!) who plays Pokemon Go. This mobile game has been all the rage. However, it is a game that can be frustrating for non-players because of all of the people with their heads buried in their phones.


Yasakajinja shrine in Higashiyama Ward, Japan is a religious center that initially put up warning signs on July 26, 2016. However, members of the temple were quickly concerned that a ban my be unfair and decided to reverse their decision a mere 3 days later.


What are your thoughts on tourist attractions banning Pokemon Go?
