Sega Akihabara (セガ 秋葉原) is a set of Sega-branded arcades in the Akihabara district of Tokyo, Japan. At present it consists of tfour buildings (which are, strictly speaking counted as three separate entities by Sega, despite being within walking distance, and dispute their names), and are collectively the company's flagship indoor game centres in Japan.

This article combines the three venues as Sega's naming schemes have changed over the years, and at least one is seen as an "extension" to another. This does not include Akihabara GiGO, another local arcade owned by Sega, although in it's later life it was called Sega Akihabara 2nd.

Sega Akihabara 1st

The first building is the "main" venue of the entire complex and has lasted the longest. It originally opened as Hi-Tech Land Sega Shintoku (ハイテクランド・セガ・シントク) on November 5, 1992, however after the bankruptcy of the building's owner, Shintoku, it became Hi-Tech Land Sega Akihabara (ハイテクランドセガ 秋葉原) and later Club Sega Akihabara (クラブ セガ 秋葉原). After a refurbishment, it reopened as an unbranded Sega arcade on March 14, 2012 and in 2017, became Sega Akihabara 1st.

It is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in the district and has acted as a location test for many of Sega's arcade produce.

Sega Akihabara 3rd

The third building opened as Club Sega Akihabara (クラブ セガ 秋葉原) on February 18, 2010. It became Sega Akihabara 3rd in mid-2017.

Sega Akihabra 4th

The fourth building opened on December 7, 2010.

Sega Akihabra 5th

The fifth building opened on July 5, 2019.
