Our journey in the beautiful world of Japanese game centers continues with another must-visit arcade. This time we’re talking about the Ikebukuro SEGA GiGO, probably the largest game center in the whole Japan. It is located not far from the Ikebukuro station, one of the three largest commercial districts in Tokyo. This huge amusement venue offers seven floor of arcade cabinets (of every type and genre), ufo-catchers and so on. And as expected, the store boasts an impressive lineup of fighting games at its B1 floor, with daily tournaments and competitions. Like its counterpart in Akihabara, this SEGA temple often holds anime oriented events. From our personal experience, it’s safe to say that this Ikebukuro GiGO is far better than everything else you could possibly find in Japan (and in the world). If you’ll travel by this district, stop and spend some money here! Must visit!

FINAL THOUGHT: Nothing else to say, apart from that this game center is like the heaven for all the arcade gamers!
