Sega World Tokyo Roof (セガワールド 東京ルーフ) was a temporary Sega World installation operated by Sega at the Tokyo Roof exhibition space for 290 days between September 1990 and June 1991. It notably featured Sega Super Circuit and R360 installations.
The Sega World section was part of (what is assumed to be) a general entertainment exhibition, "Tokyo Roof". Tokyo Roof was situated on the land formerly belonging to Shiodome Station, which had been closed and partially demolished in 1989. The Japanese government encountered troubles when attempting to privatise and redevelop the 31 hectares of land, meaning for years area was left in a state of decay, with only the roof of the former station remaining. Various events and exhibitions were held in this area until 1995, when construction finally began on a new station.
