For ”SEGA Akihabara 5th”, our fifth game center in Akihabara, we decided to do something different than the usual game arcades. Of course this game center still has a wide range of UFO catcher prizes, but for a taste of something new, we will open a taiyaki (a fish-shaped pancake filled with sweet bean paste) shop on the first floor. At the shop, visitors can buy specially designed taiyaki available here only. In the UFO catcher area we set up a captivating figurine showcase, so feel free to take a photo when you visit the game center! The 4th floor is a game floor featuring a retro game area and darts. And, on the 5th floor is an event space where various events will be held. Make sure we're on your list of places to visit when you come to Japan.
