Sega Ueno Pasela (セガ上野パセラ) is a former Sega Japanese game centre. It was among the first of the company's high-profile multi-floor amusement spaces in inner-city locations, targeting young adults through its unification of coin-operated games, food and drink, and karaoke rooms, however it has since closed permanently.

History

Opened in April 1992, Ueno Pasela was an early example of Sega's multi-floor inner-city venues, with several others including Roppongi GiGO and Hi-Tech Land Sega Shintoku launching during the same year. The venue originally took up six floors of its building - the lower three operated coin-operated arcade machines, whilst the upper three housed karaoke rooms and food and drink outlets.[1]

In the months following its opening, it was filmed for the Virtual Reality Game Encyclopedia documentary series; its third episode illustrated operations with footage of the floors and staff areas. Like the other Sega amusement centres in Tokyo, the venue was used as a frequent location test site. A small number of games, including Rail Chase 2, credit its staff. Numerous game tournaments were held at the location.

Sega Ueno Pasela is thought to have subsequently downsized, and closed in 2007.
